Broccoli Madness Salad

Broccoli SaladMMM…mmm..broccoli. One of my favourite vegetables. Hubby and I visited Sweet Tomatoes when we were down in Florida a few years ago, and we left thinking, I wish we had them in Canada! Such a great restaurant, I stumbled on this version of their broccoli salad over at Cinnamon Spice and Everything Nice. We loved the restaurant, we love broccoli AND I was asked to bring salad when going to a friend’s house. The starts aligned. I made it, and it was the best broccoli salad I have made to date! Did I already say Yum?

Ingredients
Salad:
  • ½ cup cashews- toasted
  • 1 big head broccoli
  • 6 slices cooked, chopped bacon
  • ⅓ cup dried cranberries
  • ¼ cup thinly-sliced red onion – I used white
Dressing:
  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • ⅓ cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar

2. Combine this with cashews, bacon, dried cranberries and sliced onion.
3. Combine dressing ingredients. Toss with broccoli mixture. Let sit for 10 minutes. Toss again before serving.
