Broccoli and Cauliflower Salad

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.

    I substituted sunflower seeds for the water chestnuts and used turkey bacon. I skipped the almonds. Our fellowship loved it.

    Tasty and easy to make salad. Made the dressing the night before and added dried cranberries instead of raisins.
