Cook bacon in a frying pan. Once its done, let it cool/absorb the oil on a paper towel. Then cut it into small pieces.
While bacon is cooking, coarsely chop up onion and carrot (ideally you want to use a vegetable peeler or cheese grater, but I used a knife and it was fine, just took longer).
Discard most of the bacon grease, saving enough for a thin layer to cover the bottom of the pan.
Add the broccoli to the greased pan on high for about 4 minutes or until the broccoli is slightly cooked and has just started getting darker in color.
Add the broccoli, carrots, onion, pecans, cherries, and bacon pieces to a large bowl.
Whisk the EVOO, apple cider vinegar, garlic powder, honey, and chicken bullion until well mixed and you think it tastes good (you can easily make it sweeter/saltier/more bitter by altering the ingredients)
Add the vinegarette to the broccoli mixture and toss until well combined.
