Trim off leaves from broccoli and any dry ends. Remove any tough stalks at end. Wash under cool water thoroughly.
Cut broccoli into small bite-sized floret pieces.And finely dice red onion. Cut cheddar cheese into very small chunks.
Place in a large bowl. If serving soon, add halved cherry tomatoes, raisins and bacon bits. If serving the next day, hold these items for the freshest result.
Add white vinegar, sugar and mayonnaise, stirring well. Cool in the refrigerator for 1 hour before serving, to allow the flavors to meld. And as always, enjoy!
