Broccoli Crunch Salad

January 20, 2013

Broccoli Crunch SaladI was at a potluck the other day when I tasted a version of this broccoli salad.  I was impressed with how good it was given the mishmash of ingredients.  I had no idea who made it or what the exact recipe was.  But I did a little interneting and came up with a version I thought was pretty tasty. Refrigerate after preparing. Actually tastes better the next day once the broccoli has absorbed some of the dressing.

Difficulty: Easy

3 heads of broccoli, trimmed and divided into bite-size pieces

1/2 cup dried cranberries (I like Crasins Pomegranate flavor)
1/2 cup mayonnaise

1)  Combine the broccoli, onion, bacon, cashews, and cranberries in a large mixing bowl.
