Joan's Broccoli Madness aka... Sweet Tomatoes Broccoli Salad

Joan’s Broccoli Madness

Whenever we visit Brooke, we always go to Sweet Tomatoes for dinner. We just love it! One of our favorites is the Broccoli Salad. I was so happy to find the recipe today. I made it as a side with dinner tonight and it was delicious.... just like I remember!

Serves 6-8.
1 bunch uncooked broccoli*
½ cup crumbled cooked bacon
½ cup cashews
1/3 cup raisins
¼ cup chopped red onions

1 cup mayonnaise
1/3 cup sugar
2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
Mix the first five ingredients in a large bowl.
In a second bowl, beat dressing ingredients together gently until smooth.
Toss the salad with the dressing approximately 10 minutes before serving to allow flavors to meld. Serve on chilled salad dishes.
