We eat broccoli & cauliflower quite a bit around here, & this is a great way for me to jazz it up, what with the nuts, raisins AND bacon!! I will be making this again next week, & will replace the raisins with cranberries, just for the season! Thanks for a great keeper! [Tagged & made in Please Review My Recipe]

I made this with 6 cups broccoli rather than a combination of broccoli & cauliflower, and I also used real crumbled bacon and walnuts instead of pecans (tastes about the same, but lower fat). It was really delicious. Served with Nimrod Cook's (dcmac) Filet Mignon With Lemon-Parsley Butter (Filet Mignon With Lemon-Parsley Butter), it made for a lovely and filling meal.

Excellent! A nice summery salad. I wanted something different for our guests this weekend, so I decided to try this. It got rave reviews from everyone. I did take the advice of previous raters and decreased the amount of vinegar and added just a touch of sugar/Splenda. I plan to make this again next weekend for myself. Thanks for sharing this great recipe!
