Broccoli Salad With Cashews

This dinner is super-fast (once the potatoes are baked) and tasty. For our main dish, we had baked potatoes loaded with shredded pork, cheese, and a sprinkling of chives. (Use whatever ingredients you have on hand.) The broccoli salad has a twist: Instead of the usual sunflower seeds, I toasted some cashews and stirred them in. Delicious!

Broccoli Salad With Cashews
4 broccoli crowns, cut into florets
4 bacon slices, cooked and crumbled
1/4 onion, minced
1/2 cup dried cranberries
1/2 cup cashews, toasted
1/2 to 3/4 cup mayonnaise
2 to 4 Tbsp. apple cider vinegar
2 Tbsp. sugar

1. Combine broccoli and next 4 ingredients. Stir together mayonnaise and next 2 ingredients; toss with broccoli mixture. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
