Joan's Broccoli Madness Salad
Joan's Broccoli Madness is one of the most popular recipes at Sweet Tomatoes (locations in Westminster, Littleton, Aurora and Lone Tree, Colorado). A spokes- woman tells us that while the dish used to be on rotation like most of the others, customer requests led to it being served daily.
1 bunch fresh, raw broccoli, washed and cut into bite-size pieces
1/2 cup (4 to 5 strips) cooked bacon, crumbled
1/2 cup dry roasted cashews
1/3 cup raisins
1/4 cup fresh red onion, finely chopped
1 cup mayonnaise
1/3 cup granulated sugar
2 Tablespoons apple cider vinegar
Place the salad ingredients into a large bowl and gently toss till mixed.
In a smaller bowl, whisk together the dressing ingredients until smooth; chill.
About 10 minutes before serving, toss the salad with the dressing (amount to taste; you may have dressing left over), allowing flavors to meld.
Serve on chilled salad plates.
