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.
