Combine the broccoli, onion, cheese, bacon and nuts in a large salad serving bowl.
Combine all of the dressing ingredients and whisk until well blended.
Pour the dressing over the salad and stir until all of the broccoli is lightly coated in the dressing.
Salad will will keep for 3 to 4 days in the fridge.
Use sweetener of choice such as coconut sugar or alternative. You can also adjust the amount of sweetener used if the dressing isn't sweet enough.There is the option to blanch your broccoli in boiling water for about 3 minutes and then plunge into cold water and drain before adding, for a slightly softer texture.Extra virgin olive oil (EVOO) can be used instead of mayonnaise although the dressing won't be as creamy. You could also use 1/2 mayonnaise and 1/2 EVOO.
