This is surprisingly delicious and packed with nutrients from broccoli, cashews, and raisins. You can substitute the mayo with plain yogurt for a zap of probiotics and you can also add bacon bits if you’re wanting a flavorful crunch.

1 large head of broccoli broken into florets (or you can buy a bag that is already broken up)
1/2 cup raisins
1 cup of roasted cashews halves (or whole or pieces – it’s up to you)
1 cup mayo
1/2 cup white sugar
1 to 2 tbsp cider vinegar (for extra sweetness)
1 small red onion chopped
Optional: 1/2 cup bacon bits
Chop/break your head of broccoli if you did not buy a bag of pre-cut florets.
You can combine all of the ingredients and stir together, but I save the cider vinegar and the sugar AFTER I have combined everything else. Depending on my taste buds that day, I will add the cider vinegar and sugar a little at a time until I get my desired flavor.
Chill for at least 3 – 4 before serving.
