1 medium head broccoli, cut into tiny bite-sized pieces
1/2 large red onion, diced
3/4 cup roasted cashews, coarsely chopped
1 (8 ounce) can water chestnuts, coarsely chopped
3/4 cup golden raisins
5 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
3 tablespoons brown sugar
3 1/2 tablespoons vegan mayo (I use Vegenaise)
1 teaspoon salt
8 ounces vegan bac'un bits (I use homemade: http://vegweb.com/index.php?topic=39587.0 )
1. In a large bowl, mix broccoli, red onion, cashews, water chestnuts, and golden raisins.
2. In a medium bowl, mix together balsamic vinegar, brown sugar, vegan mayonnaise, and salt to make a dressing.
3. Add dressing mixture to the veggies, mix, and refrigerate for 2-3 hours. You can eat immediately, but it is yummier if you let it refrigerate for at least 2-3 hours.
4. Add the vegan bac'un bits to the salad mixture right before serving.
