Broccoli Cauliflower Salad


revised130This is a great spring salad — crisp broccoli, celery and cauliflower; sweet baby peas; a delicious creamy dressing;  and BACON!! I actually think that you could substitute diced ham from your Easter dinner with equally good results. Perfect alone as a light meal or as a great side at lunch or dinner.



  • 2 cups cauliflower, cut in bite size pieces
  • 2 cups broccoli, cut in bite size
  • 1/2 cup celery
  • 1 cup frozen peas, blanched and chilled
  • 1-1/2 cups cooked and chopped bacon


  • 2 cups mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup Parmesan cheese
  • 2 teaspoons vinegar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup chopped onion


  1. In a large bowl toss cauliflower, broccoli, celery, peas, and bacon.
  2. In a medium bowl combine mayo, sugar, Parmesan cheese, vinegar, salt and onion. Mix well. Pour over salad and toss to mix well and serve.

About Worth Stopping By . . .

I am a blogger who would rather talk than write. I enjoy traveling, family time, friends and food/fine dining. I have made some real efforts in the kitchen lately, and I blog in order to document and motivate myself to: 1.) fully use all of the fresh ingredients in my kitchen and 2.) cook healthy, creative meals.
