So yes, this may not be everyone’s favorite, but I seriously LOVE this stuff.  I usually make a batch and eat the whole thing myself for lunches throughout the week at work.  It’s filling (thank you fiber), and tangy.  Think of it more like a veggie dip platter in a bowl (ooooo…now I’m thinking of all the other veggies that might like to join the party next time I make this…).

3/4 Cup Mayo (or plain yogurt)
1/4 Cup Sugar
1/4-1/2 Cup Cider Vinegar (add to your desired taste)

5 Cups or 1 Head Broccoli, cleaned and chopped (raw)
1/2 Cup Honey Roasted Peanuts
1 1/2 Cup Chopped Red Onion
1/2 Cup Raisins (or Golden Raisins, or Dried Cranberries)

Mix first three ingredients into a smooth dressing with a whisk.  In a separate bowl, combine all remaining ingredients and pour dressing over.  Toss to coat and allow to rest in the fridge for about 30 min.  If you want to make this ahead of time, make sure to add the peanuts and raisins the same day you’ll be serving it or they’ll get mushy (yuck).  You can also add cooked, chopped bacon to this if you’re feeling especially indulgent.  Easy-peasy.
