Serves 12-16


  • 5 cup chopped broccoli florets
  • 5 cup chopped cauliflower florets
  • 2 cup shredded cheddar cheese (the sharper, the better)
  • 1/2 cup golden raisins or craisins (dried cranberries)
  • 2/3 cup minced onion or green onions
  • 6 bacon strips, cooked and crumbled
  • 1/4 cup shelled, salted, toasted sunflower seeds


  1. Chop the broccoli and cauliflower florets into tiny bite-sized pieces. Combine the broccoli and cauliflower in a large salad bowl. Add the shredded cheese and mix it up with your fingers. Mix in the raisins/craisins and the minced onion.
  2. In a small bowl, combine the sugar, mayonnaise, and vinegar. Mix it with a rubber spatula, or whisk until it’s smooth.
  3. Pour the dressing you just mixed over the top of the salad. Toss it, or stir it with a spoon or spatula until the vegetables are coated with the dressing. Chill in refrigerator for at least a couple of hours before serving.
  4. To serve, sprinkle the bacon bits on top. Sprinkle the sunflower seeds on top of that.
