  • 3 cups small broccoli florets
  • 3 cups small cauliflower florets
  • ½ cup toasted walnuts
  • ½ cup chopped red onion
  • ½ cup cheddar jack cheese
  • ½ cup cooked chopped bacon
  • ½ cup dried cranberries


  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • ¼ cup white vinegar
  • 2 Tablespoons granulated sugar
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  • Combine broccoli, cauliflower, walnuts, red onion, cheese, cooked bacon, and cranberries in a large bowl. Set aside.
  • In another bowl, add mayonnaise, white vinegar, sugar, salt and pepper and stir to combine.
  • Pour dressing over salad ingredients and toss, ensuring all pieces of the salad are covered in the dressing. Serve and enjoy.


  • You’ll want the broccoli and cauliflower to be cut into small florets. I break each full sized florets into smaller pieces.
  • Make this salad vegetarian by omitting the bacon. You can make it plant based by using a vegan mayonnaise.
  • Once made, keep covered and refrigerated til ready to serve.
