Cut up the broccoli, bell pepper, celery, peas, carrot and red onion and put them in a salad bowl. Add the dried cranberries.
Cube the cheese.
Mix together the mayonnaise, red wine vinegar and sugar.
Mix the vegetables, dried cranberries, cheese, and mayonnaise mixture together.
Garnish with bacon (optional) and serve.
Cut the veggies into small and even pieces so that everything combines evenly.
I prefer to use a full fat mayonnaise, but you can use a low fat one.
