I like every thing about this recipe except the texture of the veggies after being blanched. The flavors are really good together. I will try it again with raw veggies. Thanks for posting.

This is soooo delicious, D. Added more veggies ((green, red peppers, yellow squash, capers), since I had them from another recipe--(didn't blanch, tho); followed the recipe otherwise. Lots of crunchiness--love it! Great summer-time salad!

Simple salad that's easy to whip up and very economical too! I used cheddar cheese shreds, some leftover bacon and Miracle Whip Light. I was glad that I blanched the veggies - I think that is a very good idea as it softens the broccoli and cauliflower just a tiny bit, thanks for including the instructions on how to do it. Made for Zaar Stars tag game.
