Basic Cold Broccoli Salad (with Blue Cheese, Bacon, Cranberries and Cashews)

Cold Broccoli Salad with Blue Cheese, Bacon, Cranberries and Cashews
About twice a week I stock up on several bunches of fresh broccoli. It is a lot like chicken: A basic food that can be prepared in a variety of ways, all equally delicious.

A few weeks ago, I posted my recipe for Basic Warm Broccoli Salad. I probably prepare this at least twice a month, in a variety of ways. The same goes for Basic Cold Broccoli Salad.

Fast and Frugal: Broccoli-Quinoa Salad with Walnuts and Dried Cranberries

Broccoli-Quinoa Salad with Walnuts and Dried Cranberries

I love raw broccoli salads, with or without broccoli's frequent partner, cauliflower. I make one version with cheddar, black olives and cashews, and another with carrots, raisins and walnuts.

Eating raw vegetables makes me feel virtuous and it makes me feel better. As the weather warms up - if it does this year - I am less inclined to cook anything, unless I'm trying to use up last season's freezer contents.
