One thing to remember when making a broccoli cashew salad is to keep the cashew pieces fairly large-halving them works well. This way the flavor of the nut stands out and can be easily tasted.
If they are chopped up too small they sort of get lost in the salad and you don't really taste them.
I would also recommend you ad the cashews just before serving so they don't get too soggy.
For added flavor you can use flavored, salted or some type of roasted nuts if the plain raw ones seem a little bland.
Below are two different versions of this salad:
The first recipe includes raisins and bacon and the standard dressing normally used for a broccoli salad. Hint: for a more flavourful salad use real smoked bacon from your local butcher or a gourmet type rather than the regular grocery store brands. The flavours will mix with the dressing, giving it a rich smoky taste.
The second recipe has a more exotic flavour to it using mandarin oranges and a less sweet more tangy dressing.
