Broccoli Madness

When we moved to Colorado Springs in 2007, I was saddened to discover that there was not a Souplantation here.  Then we discovered that there was one in Denver (about an hour North) but never seem to make it up there.  I found the recipe on their blog for the Joan's Broccoli Madness salad ( ) and I finally tried it yesterday.  It was DELICIOUS!  I was so thrilled and I thought I would share the recipe here:

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.

*The broccoli is a loose guideline: often people have to make it a few times before they get it just the way they like it.
