6 cups broccoli (two small to medium sized crowns), chopped into bite-size pieces
1 cup raw sunflower seeds
1/2 cup red onion, finely chopped
1/2 cup raisins
Cashew dressing (recipe below)
Mix together broccoli, raisins, red onion, raisins, and sunflower seeds.
Top with dressing and combine until all ingredients are covered.
1 cup raw cashews, soaked at least 1- 2 hours
1/3 cup water
1 1/2 Tablespoons apple cider vinegar
1 Tablespoon lemon juice
1 Tablespoon agave (or other liquid sweetener like maple syrup)
1 Tablespoon shallot, chopped (optional)
1 clove garlic, chopped
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1/2 teaspoon dijon mustard
Combine all ingredients in a high powered blender or processor until completely smooth.
This is a nice vegetarian salad. For those who eat meat, bacon is wonderful in this salad.

Bacon is wonderful in this salad. If this is your idea of bite size pieces of broccoli I hate to see the size of your mouth! Looks like whole stalks in the picture.
