Broccoli Cauliflower Salad



   We are going to be going to Jeremiah's parents home on Sunday for a Memorial Day picnic.  I always have trouble deciding what dish to take.  Jeremiah always wants to take some meat to grill so I got some chicken for that but I needed another dish.  While I was shopping, I decided to make Broccoli Cauliflower Salad.  Madilynne and I worked together to put this dish together today because it always seems to taste better if it can be refrigerated for awhile before serving.  I made a large amount of salad but you can easily half this recipe.

Broccoli Cauliflower Salad

2 bunches of broccoli
2 heads of cauliflower
1 large red onion
1 lb. bacon
2 8 oz. packages of mild cheddar cheese, shredded

2 cups Miracle Whip- no substitutions
2 cups sour cream
3/4 cup sugar
2 Tbsp. apple cider vinegar
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. pepper

Clean and cut broccoli and cauliflower into small bite sized pieces.  Cut onion in to large diced pieces.  Cut bacon into small bits and cook until crispy.  Drain on a paper towel.  Mix the broccoli, cauliflower, onion and bacon bits in a large bowl.  Add shredded cheese.  Mix all the ingredients of the dressing in a mixing bowl.  Mix well.  Add to veggie mixture and mix well.  Place in refrigerator until ready to serve.
