In the summer, it's nice to have a quick salad that you can throw together when company is coming or just for a side dish for dinner. If you've never tried it, broccoli/cauliflower salad could be just what you're looking for.
|Although you can purchase broccoli and |
cauliflower in regular form, if you're in a hurry,
try purchasing it in pre-made bags like these.
2 cups broccoli florets, remove the stems (chopped into piece as little or big as you want them)
2 cups of cauliflower florets, remove the stems (chopped into piece as little or big as you want them)
Crumbled, cooked bacon
1/4 cup chopped sweet red pepper (optional)
1/4 cup chopped Vidalia onion
3/4 cup Mayo
3 T sugar
2 T vinegar
WASH the broccoli and cauliflower and let dry. Pre-cook bacon and have ready while the vegetables are drying.
In a bowl, combine the broccoli and cauliflower.
Add the onion, sweet pepper and bacon. I didn't have sweet pepper so I used bacon and onion only.
In another bowl, stir the mayo, sugar and vinegar until smooth and pour over the salad and toss to coat. Store in refrigerator for 24 hours before serving. Occasionally, I make more of the mayo sauce and add to it after it has set for the 24 hour period.
I have also seen people add raisins, sunflower seeds and other goodies to this salad. The possibilities are limitless!
