Vegan Broccoli “Bacon” Salad

This veganized version of a picnic classic is not only healthier than the original, but delicious as well!  Instead of a mayonnaise based dressing with refined sugar, it has a coconut cashew based dressing with maple syrup. And instead of bacon, it has a coconut bacon that is crispy, smokey and delicious like the real thing!  This would be perfect for a picnic, just wait until you are ready to serve to add the bacon so it stays crisp.
