Bacon Broccoli Cauliflower Salad
1 extra-large or 2 large broccoli crowns
1 medium head cauliflower
1 small red onion, sliced
1 pound bacon, cooked and crumbled
1 cup mayonnaise or salad dressing
3/4 cup sugar
6 tablespoons white or garlic vinegar (see note)
2 tablespoons hot sauce
1 cup grated longhorn or Cheddar cheese
Cut broccoli and cauliflower florets into bite-size pieces. In large bowl, combine broccoli, cauliflower, onion and bacon. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
Combine mayonnaise, sugar, vinegar and hot sauce in small bowl and beat until frothy. Or use a shaker container and shake until frothy.
Add grated cheese to the broccoli mixture and toss with dressing just before serving. Makes 12 to 15 servings.
Note: To make garlic vinegar, separate and peel the cloves from one head of garlic and put them in a 24-ounce bottle of white vinegar. Refrigerate for at least 24 hours to let the flavor infuse.
