Broccoli Cauliflower Salad

You’re either gonna love the sound of this one, or hate it.  My hubby?  He won’t touch the stuff.  Me?  It’s one of my favorites!  The crunch… the tangy/sweet mix… the variety of textures… yum!

Broccoli Cauliflower Salad

  • 1 lb. bacon, cooked and crumbled
  • 2 c. chopped fresh broccoli
  • 2 c. chopped fresh cauliflower
  • 1 (8 oz.) can water chestnuts, sliced and drained
  • 1/2 c. raisins
  • 1/3 c. sunflower seeds (shelled)
  • 2/3 c. chopped red onion
  • 1/2 c. mayonaisse
  • 1/2 c. plain yogurt (or sour cream)
  • 1/3 c. sugar
  • 2 T. tarragon vinegar

Toss together bacon, broccoli, cauliflower, water chestnuts, raisins, sunflower seeds, and onion in a large bowl.

Mix together mayonnaise, yogurt, sugar, and tarragon vinegar.  Pour over salad mixture.  Toss to coat.  Refrigerate before serving.

** This is a great make-ahead salad.  It tastes better when the flavors have a chance to marinate.

  1. Mmm one of my goals is top have a summer of salads and this is going on my list!

  2. This might be a brilliant way for me to get in my broccoli and cauliflower! Thanks for sharing!

  3. Looks yummy one of my favorite recipes is a broccoli salad.

  4. My mom makes one like this a lot all year long. While it isn’t my favorite it is very good!

  5. I’m with hubby on this one!

  6. This looks a lot like my broccoli salad recipe, but with half the broccoli traded for cauliflower. I think we’ll love it.

  7. Oh, that sounds so yummy and perfect for those summer days of grilling! Thank you for sharing!

  8. This is one of my all-time favorite salads. I usually use all broccoli instead of half cauliflower though. I love the bacon and raisins in this. Yum! Too bad I’m the only one in my immediate family that will eat it or I’d make it more often.

  9. I adore broccoli and cauliflower, but I think I’m just more of a “straight up” girl when it comes to them. I definitely have family members who would like this combo but, alas, I’m not among them. Ah, well… we can still give in to cheesy eggs together! 😉

  10. I’ve made this before, once for a super bowl party. But I made it early the day before and the broccoli wilted. Maybe make sure you eat it within 12 hours of making it? Anyway, I used crazins instead of raisins and loved it! I love this salad.

  11. This sounds delicious! I make broccoli salad. I think the next time I make it, I will add cauliflower.

  12. That looks tasty and perfect for spring!!

  13. YUM! Gonna give this a try! Thanks for sharing

  14. This sounds delish and different from broccoli salads I’ve had before. 😀 I’m so ready for spring salads like this one! 😀

  17. Oh, fabulous! This looks amazing – I’m such a huge fan of outside-the-box salads and for me, this is it. Thank you for sharing this!
