This is the BEST broccoli salad ever. And believe me when I say that. This is my grandmother's recipe. I make this for potlucks and I am always stopped multiple times for the recipe and lots of compliments.

This salad is always a winner! My friends had been making it for a while and I was looking for the recipe... for the dressing. I haven't tried this exact version, but ours is pretty close. Instead of craisins we use raisins, and also replace the cashews by sunflower seeds. I also add a bit of orange cheddar to this recipe. AWESOME! You can't go wrong with this one, just let your imagination go. You need crunch, a little sweet and a little salt.

- 1⁄4 cup cashews, coarsely chopped
- 1⁄2 cup craisins
