Broccoli and Cauliflower Salad

So how does it feel to be neglected?  Sitting and waiting for some new recipe to share with those you love, only to be let down day after day when a certain blogger fails to post.  Well, maybe I’m overstating your disappointment due to not hearing from me for over a week, but I still feel just as guilty even if the above were true.

I can give you all the reasons for my bloglect (the neglect of one’s blog) but I know each of you are just as busy as me so I won’t waste my breath.  I am happy to report though that I am typing in a beautiful master bedroom now that my 1980′s blue is officially history.  I still have a bit more work to do but it is wonderful to walk into my bedroom and feel like it is my room and not someone else’s. 
Here is a classic recipe in our household and I know there are a million versions of this salad out there.  It is my hubby’s favorite but he likes to add raisins as well.  In my opinion, raisins ruin a perfectly delicious salad.
Broccoli and Cauliflower Salad
1 head broccoli, chopped small
1 head cauliflower, chopped small
1 small red onion, minced
1 package real bacon pieces
1/2-3/4 C sunflower seeds
1 C light mayo (not miracle whip!)
1/2 C sugar
1/4 C white vinegar
Ground pepper
1.  Combine dressing ingredients and pour over salad.  Mix to combine well.  Best if this salad sits overnight, but minimum of three hours.

    Hi there! I know this was posted quite a long time ago but I was wondering approximately how much bacon is in a “package” of real bacon pieces? The “package” that I buy is from Costco and has 20 oz. of bacon in it…which I think would be a LITTLE much even for bacon. :)

    Kathy- good question and yes, the Costco sized bag might be a bit too much :). I would use about 3/4 C from your big bag but it is certainly flexible if you like less or more!
