Broccoli Cauliflower salad.

This delicious broccoli cauliflower salad has been a family favourite for years now. This is the only way my boys will eat broccoli and cauliflower . Its so tasty,  so simple,  does not take too much time to make ,  makes my family eat their veggies and is a great potluck/ BBQ side to have. Above all else, this salad can be made ahead of time for fuss free entertaining.



2 cups each broccoli and cauliflower florets ( blanched)

1 red pepper, cut into strips

1-1/2 cups chopped cooked boneless skinless chicken breasts ( I cooked the chicken with salt and pepper to taste and then chopped them)

1/2 cup  Light Ranch Dressing ( I used fat free ranch)

1 cup  Natural  Colby& light cheddar (grated)

4 slices  Bacon, cooked, crumbled .

Salt and pepper to taste

a pinch of sugar.


Combine vegetables and chicken  in large bowl. Add dressing; toss to coat.

Add cheese and bacon; mix lightly.

Refrigerate  several hours or until chilled.
