½teaspoonfresh cracked black pepper
4cupsbroccoli florets,broken into bite-size pieces (2 medium-size bunches)

⅓cupred onion,finely diced
Using a medium-sized mixing bowl, whisk together the mayonnaise, sour cream, apple cider vinegar, sugar, kosher salt, and pepper until smooth. Set it aside.
Using an extra-large mixing bowl, add the broccoli florets, diced apple, carrots, pecans, cranberries, and red onion.
Pour the dressing over the salad, and using a wooden spoon, stir the salad to coat the vegetables thoroughly. Keep the salad in the refrigerator until you are ready to serve.
The salad dressing can be made the night before and stored in a mason jar in the fridge until you are ready to use it.
If you love this salad and plan to make it frequently, double or even triple the dressing and store the extras in a mason jar in the fridge for next time.
Place the sliced red onions in a small dish of cold water and let them soak for at least 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Soaking the onions in cold water helps remove some of the raw onion taste. It is optional to do. When ready to prepare the salad, drain the onions.
