Broccoli Cauliflower Salad

I’m stepping out of my dessert mode for a day and posting a recipe that I love to make during the summer. I have discovered that I like broccoli raw, more than cooked.  So this recipe is a favorite of mine. Sometimes, I add a chopped green onion for more color and a 1/2 of a red bell pepper.

1 good size bunch of fresh broccoli, cut into small bite size pieces

1 medium cauliflower, cut into small bite size pieces

1 jar real bacon bits, or 10 strips of bacon, fried and crumbled

1/4 cup red onion, finely chopped

1 cup golden raisins

Dressing:

1 cup mayonnaise

1/4 cup sugar

2 teas white vinegar

Mix dressing ingredients and blend until thoroughly blended. Can be made the day before pouring over salad mixture.

Mix all salad ingredients, except bacon. Combine with dressing ingredients. Toss gently. Cover and chill for several hours or overnight. Add bacon just before serving.
