Since we are mid-way through the summer picnic season I thought I'd post this reader favorite recipe. Comes from an Amish woman in Navarre, Ohio and, wow, is it a family favorite here. Just an easy, delicious salad. It tastes as good as it looks in this photo. Yum!
- 1 head broccoli, chopped
- 1 head cauliflower, chopped
- 1 cup mayonnaise
- 1 cup sour cream
- ½ cup sugar
- ½ teaspoon salt
- ½ pound bacon, fried and crumbled
- 1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
- Combine the chopped broccoli and cauliflower in a large bowl.
- In a separate bowl, combine the mayonnaise, sour cream, sugar, and salt to make a creamy dressing.
- Add the dressing to the broccoli–cauliflower mix, stirring to evenly coat the vegetables.
- Stir in the bacon and the cheese, reserving a small amount to sprinkle on top of the salad just before serving.
This is by far one of my favorite summer salads; every time I make it I never fail to have multiple people asking me for the recipe.
Thanks for sharing this one Kevin! 🙂
How many will this serve?
Nannette, 8 to 10 people if you are using it as a side dish...thanks for stopping by!
It looks as if there is macaroni noodles in the picture but none listed in the recipe. Can you confirm?
Robbie, no noodles in the salad..I'll have to look at the picture again but, nope, no noodles! Thanks for stopping by!
