  1. Cook bacon in a large skillet and over medium-high heat, turning occasionally, until crisp, about 10 minutes. Drain the bacon slices on paper towels and crumble once cooled.
  2. Mix bacon, broccoli, red onion, raisins, and cashews together in a large bowl.
  3. Whisk mayonnaise, brown sugar, and red wine vinegar together in a separate bowl; drizzle over the broccoli mixture in small amounts, tossing the salad between additions to coat somewhat evenly.


  • Cook's Note:
  • If possible, let salad refrigerate overnight, as it will improve the flavor greatly. If you leave it overnight, toss again before serving, as dressing will settle to bottom of bowl.

Made this for our Easter dinner. It was a hit! I especially love the dressing. It is a quick, easy, and super delicious salad to make!

Made a great Christmas addition

Made this for Thanksgiving and it was a hit. I added some dried cranberries to make it more festive looking. I will make this again.

I've made this twice now - everyone loves it. The flavours go very well together. I made it ahead of time and just mixed it all together when we needed it. It was even better the next day!

I made this just as directed to go with turkey dinner. It was fabulous! Cold and crisp, a great counterpoint to all the rich Thanksgiving sides.

One of my favorite salads. I didn't have red onion or sunflower seeds but subbed in almond and white onion with no problems. Such a surprising combination of favors.
