Broccoli, Cauliflower, and Bacon Salad

29 Jun

I meant to post this last week, I really did, but better late than never, and just in time for the 4th!

I made this “salad” for our Fathers’ Day cookout- it’s an old family recipe and my dad’s favorite vegetable-delivery method.  I say “salad” for lack of a better word – it’s a salad in the way that potato salad is a salad.  It’s smothered in mayo and bacon and absolutely delicious, plus, it can and should be made ahead- it’s 5000x better if it sits for a day and 9034839834x better if it sits for two.

Broccoli, Cauliflower, and Bacon Salad
Raspberry & Coconut

Ingredients:
1 head broccoli, chopped into bite-sized pieces
1 head cauliflower, chopped onto bite-sized pieces
1/2 – 1 package cooked, crumbled bacon
1 c. homemade mayo
1/2 c. chopped green onions
1/2 c. parmesan cheese
1 T. apple cider vinegar

Directions:
Mix mayo, vinegar, and green onions. Toss in broccoli and cauliflower until coated, then mix in bacon. Refrigerate at least 8 hours (it’s better if it sits a day or two), toss, and serve.
