"This sounds much easier than the cauliflower/broccoli salad that I was going to fix and I could just pour 1 to 1 1/2 cups of ranch dressing over the veggies and bacon, maybe throw in some ripe olives and top with cheese? Hmmm... Better get to cutting veggies if I'm going to take it tomorrow!!! Thank you...."
