Broccoli Cauliflower Salad

You can substitute bottled coleslaw dressing for the ingredients that are listed here, however I have never tried it myself. It is really good with all kinds of extras. I like adding sunflower seeds and raisins. Others have added peanuts and dried fruit.

1 bunch broccoli florets, in small pieces
1 bunch cauliflower florets, in small pieces
*if you don't like one or the other you can do 2 bunches of broccoli or 2 of cauli
1 small red onion, finely chopped
4 oz cheddar cheese, shredded
1 16 oz package bacon, cooked and crumbled
1 c mayonnaise
1/4 c sugar
2 T wine vinegar (i used 1 T white vinegar, 1 T red wine vinegar)
I added 1/4 cup sunflower seeds and 1/2 cup raisins

Combine salad ingredients, toss with dressing and chill several hours before serving.


  1. I make this JUST with romaine, also simplify with just white vinegar - this is a STAPLE at our house and a CHEAP salad that EVERYONE will eat! I have gotten so many requests for this!
