Thanksgiving Faves- Broccoli Cauliflower Salad

Since moving away from Idaho extended family Thanksgivings have been pretty sparse.  This year we are blessed to have family coming and we will get together at my brother's house.  Which leads me in to this requested recipe that I got from my sister in law Nicole.  Another salad I don't make often enough. It is always a hit!!

Broccoli Cauliflower Salad
5 cups broccoli, cut into small pieces
3 cups cauliflower, cut into small pieces
1 medium purple onion, chopped
½ cup salted sunflower seeds
1 pound bacon, cooked crisp and crumbled

Dressing:
1 cup mayonnaise
½ cup sugar
1/3 cup cider vinegar
1/3 cup Parmesan cheese

1. Mix broccoli, cauliflower, onion, sunflower seeds and bacon together in a large bowl.
2. Mix dressing ingredients together and pour over salad. Stir until well coated.
3. Chill for 2-4 hours.

Note: You can use what ever ratio of broccoli/cauliflower you like.  All broccoli or half and half, ect.

The chill time does make a difference. It really allows the flavors to mix nicely.


Happy Thanksgiving,
