Broccoli Cashew Salad

I made this yesterday and it was so good!!  I had pinned it on Pinterest but the original pin comes from All Recipes and here it is.  The thing that I like about All Recipes is that you can automatically change the serving number, this salad originally made 8 servings, I changed it to 2 servings - it was perfect with some leftover chicken wings made on the weekend and still leftovers left for lunch today.

I am sharing the recipe for two, check out the recipe and make it for however many you want...

Broccoli Cashew Salad

1/4 lb. bacon - I used 3 slices

1/4 c. mayonnaise

1/2 tsp. cider vinegar - I didn't have any, I used rice vinegar

2 tbsp. white sugar

1/2 pound fresh broccoli, broken into florets - I used 2 cups

2 tbsp. raisins

1/4 cup roasted cashews - I didn't roast them

1/8 red onion, finely chopped.

Place the bacon in frying pan and cook over medium high heat, until browned and crisp.  Drain the bacon on a paper towel lined plate.  Cool bacon and crumble into pieces.

Whisk together the mayonnaise, vinegar and sugar in a mixing bowl until the sugar has dissolved.  Add the broccoli, raisins, cashews, onion and bacon.  Stir until evenly coated.  Cover and refrigerate the salad for at least 2 hours.  Let stand at room temperature for 15-20 minutes before serving.

  1. Well this looks fabulous! I use Allrecipes all the time, I think I may have made this before. Yum, will have to again.

  2. Love broccoli salad, thanks for the recipe for two.

  3. One of my very favorite salads. My daughter is always asked to bring it to every potluck. I like the recipe for 2. Have a great week! Hugs, Dianne

  4. That looks yummy! I love broccoli. And it would be very easy for me to make minus the bacon. :)


  5. Jill, I make this salad, but my recipe has sunflower seeds. I bet the cashews are good too! It's one of our favs and I haven't made it in a while. Pinning yours to try. Thanks for sharing with SYC.
