Broccoli and Cauliflower Salad

Broccoli and Cauliflower Salad

I make broccoli salad pretty often, but sometimes like to switch it up a little by adding cauliflower. The result is  a salad that has a great mixed of flavors, colors  and textures. The addition of bacon also adds a wonderful smoky flavor. Certainly, feel free to omit the bacon for a vegetarian salad. With or without the bacon, this is a great salad for the warmer days ahead.

Broccoli and Cauliflower Salad

4 c. cauliflower, broken into bite- sized pieces

2 broccoli crowns, cut into bite- sized pieces

1 can water chestnuts, drained and sliced

1 sweet pepper, seeded and chopped

1 c. shredded cheese, optional

8- 10 slices of bacon, cooked and chopped

1/2- 3/4 cup of mayo, adjust to your preference

salt and pepper to taste

Steam the cauliflower and broccoli until just tender/crisp. About 5 minutes in a microwave steamer, 6 minutes in a conventional steamer. Place in a bowl to cool down then combine with remaining ingredients and stir to combine well. Adjust seasonings, if needed. Serves 6-8.
