You have two options: you can choose to eat this salad raw or to cook the broccoli first. If you prefer raw broccoli, simply place the broccoli in a large bowl. If you prefer cooked broccoli, cook the broccoli with water over stovetop until soft.
Cook bacon in a skillet over medium heat. Once both sides are cooked, remove bacon from skillet and allow at least 2 minutes for it to cool.
Pour rendered bacon (bacon fat) overtop broccoli.
Add walnuts, cranberries, olive oil and lemon juice to bowl.
By now, the bacon should be cooked off enough for you to cut or break bacon into smaller pieces and toss it into the bowl as well.
Mix everything together and enjoy!
