Broccoli/Cauliflower Salad

So the regulars here probably now how strongly I feel about the grossness of cauliflower, lol. However my friend made this salad and gave me some to try and it was awesome!

You chop up the broccoli and cauliflower really small, smaller than bite size. I used one bunch of broccoli and half a head of cauliflower, then you add a little shredded cheese, you can use cheddar or pepper jack, and bacon. I used the real already cooked and crumpled bacon from the salad aisle, and a tiny bit of really finely diced onion.( Even though I also hate onions I didn't mind it, but I left it out when I made it simply because I had none on hand.)

Then you toss it with a dressing made of a cup of mayo, a tablespoon of vinegar(white or apple cider) and a little sugar. She uses 1/4 cup, I just kind of eyeballed it.

Which is also the dressing my mom uses for apple-nut salad and coleslaw!

I know this sounds odd together, but if I love it and it has 2 ingredients I can't stand under normal circumstances it must be good!

I'm glad you tried it and liked it. Most kiods who don't usually like vegetables, gobble this up.  Broccoli-cauliflower salad is really popular at my house. I often change it depending on what I have on hand, but red pepper, golden raisins and olives are really good in it.

 I was skeptical at first but I knew my friend would ask how I liked it and I didn't want to hurt her feelings, so I tried it, lol.

I love them cooked but I do NOT like them raw.

Sounds really good!  I'm going to make it with a different dressing though cuz I don't do mayonnaise.  Maybe I'll try it this week.  Thanks for sharing!

Ooh, red peppers would be great for flavor and color!!  And of course everything is better with olives!!  :)
