Step 1

Place the bacon in a large, deep skillet, and cook over medium-high heat, turning occasionally, until evenly browned and crisp, about 10 minutes. Drain the bacon slices on a paper towel-lined plate. Cool bacon and crumble into pieces.

Step 2

Whisk together the mayonnaise, cider vinegar, sugar, pepper and celery seed in a mixing bowl until the sugar has dissolved. Add the broccoli, raisins, cashews, onion, crumbled bacon and cheddar. Stir until evenly coated.

Step 3

Cover and refrigerate the salad for at least 2 hours. Let stand at room temperature 15 to 20 minutes before serving.

I made this to bring to a picnic and ir went over like gangbusters. I think someone licked the bowl clean by the looks of the bowl I had it in! Good thing I grabbed some early on, or I would have missed out on this crunchy full of flavor salad. Everyone loved it!

I made this for a barbecue tomorrow. Tastes delicious right now, and will taste even better tomorrow after everything mingles for awhile!

I wanted something good to have with some ribs, so, I had my dd make this to have with them. Great crunch and super delicious! We will have this often with the summer approaching, but it would even be good in the dead of winter with a nice steak or chop!

I made this to have with chicken and it was delicious! We loved the added crunch and it tasted so good we kept going back for "just a little more". Wasn't long and it was gone! Great anytime with any kind of meat.

This is a great tasting summer salad and we have enjoyed it several times. It's crunchy and tastes great with grilled meats. We think this one is extra good with the cashews!

This is a lovely salad and it went so good with my ham for Easter dinner. My little one didn't eat the cashews, but you should have seen him dig into the broccoli and raisins! My dd had two helpings and so did I. Another total winner with us!
