Broccoli/Cauliflower Salad

The boys don't care for salads too much, but this is always one of our favorites.  I think it's the bacon that makes it sooooo good!  Can never have too much bacon :)



BROCCOLI/CAULIFLOWER SALAD 

1 small head cauliflower
1 small broccoli
8 slices bacon 

Optional:
1/2 c. raisens
onion
1 tin water chestnuts 

Cut bacon into 1 inch pieces and fry till done. Add cut up cauliflower, broccoli, bacon, raisens, onion and water chestnuts to large bowl and stir. 

Mix:
1 cup miracle whip (or salad dressing)
1/2 c. sugar
2 tsp. vinegar 
Add to vegetables etc., and let sit over night. I didn't add onion or water chestnuts.

  1. My mother used to make something like this but it had peanuts in it also. Haven't had that in ages. This one is a keeper.

  6. YUM. That sound exactly like the recipe I have for broccoli salad except I add shredded cheddar. The dressing is the same though. I like cauliflower so maybe next time I'll throw some of that in too
