Broccoli & Cauliflower Salad


Now that summer is in full swing, so are summer salads! How can you go wrong with fresh summer veggies covered in bacon and cheese?! 🙂 The slightly sweet (from the raisins and dressing) and salty combination is spot on.

This recipe makes a ton and is easily made the night before a party or cookout.

Broccoli & Cauliflower Salad

  • 3-4 small heads of broccoli, cut into bite size pieces
  • 1 medium head of cauliflower, cut into bite sized pieces
  • 1/2 of a red onion, thinly sliced
  • 3/4 cup cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 7 slices of thick cut bacon, cooked and crumbled
  • 1/3 cup raisins
  • 1 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup  sugar
  • 2 tablespoons vinegar
  • pepper, to taste


  1. In a large bowl combine the broccoli, cauliflower, red onion, shredded cheese, bacon and raisins.
  2. In a small bowl whisk together the mayo, sugar, vinegar and pepper. Slowly add the dressing until you have the desired about of dressing mixed in. I usually don’t use it all, but it also depends on how much broccoli and cauliflower you use.
  3. Refrigerate the salad for at least 2 hours, or overnight.

Makes 10-12 servings.
