Broccoli and Cauliflower Salad is my recipe of the day with  the blogging  group  Sunday Funday. We get together once per week to share recipes on assorted topics. This week we are posting recipes for healthy salads.

One of my recent favorites is this version of broccoli salad which also includes cauliflower. I have dressed it up with lots of fruity craisins and grapes.

You get  lots of crunch as well from both walnuts and pepitas. And it just wouldn’t be perfect  without a bit of bacon and cheese, don’t you think?

I’m thinking this one does double duty as either a festive holiday salad for the dinner table or just something you make ahead to have packed in  lunches. Either way you can’t go wrong.

  1. Occasionally I add cauliflower to a salad but have not really thought of using raw broccoli. Have to try a broccoli salad and with some cheese, I totally cannot refuse that.

  2. That looks a delicious salad with both broccoli and cauliflower in it. I like the simple dressing of this salad
