My family loves the "crunch" of this broccoli and cauliflower salad...and each crisp ingredient adds to that delight! The secret of this recipe is to make the dressing a day ahead to allow the flavors to blend.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups mayonnaise
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 tablespoons vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped onion
  • 1/2 cup raisins
  • 1 bunch broccoli, cut into florets
  • 1 small head cauliflower, cut into florets
  • 1 can (8 ounces) sliced water chestnuts, drained
  • 1/2 pound bacon, cooked and crumbled
  • 2/3 cup slivered toasted almonds

Directions

  1. In a small bowl, combine mayonnaise, sugar, Parmesan cheese, vinegar, onion and raisins; refrigerate several hours or overnight. Just before serving, combine broccoli, cauliflower, water chestnuts, bacon and almonds in a large bowl. Pour dressing over and toss to coat.
