  1. Mix broccoli, cranberries, onion, and celery in a large bowl. Whisk mayonnaise, sugar, and rice vinegar together in a bowl; pour over broccoli mixture. Toss to combine. Sprinkle with cashews just before serving.


  • Cook's Note:
  • If you're not a fan of raw broccoli, a good idea is, before cutting up the broccoli, to place the heads in boiling water for 3 seconds. This gets rid of the raw taste. The stalks may also be included if desired. It doesn't really affect the taste.

Didn't see this recipe until after making the creamy bacon and broccoli salad. I will use this one next time. I use reduced fat mayo and slightly less than 1/4 cup sugar. I like the idea of b...

I used other suggestions and blanched the broccoli and used sunflower seeds.
