This was so good! I steamed the broccoli and cauliflower for 5 minutes and let them cool before making the salad. I used low-fat mayo and freshly grated parmesan. I cut the bacon to half the specified amount, just to lower the fat. I will use this recipe again! Thanks for posting!!

This is a great tasting, make-ahead salad. I followed the recipe exactly, except for adding a dash of ground black pepper (mostly out of habit of adding it to EVERYTHING!) This will be great to take to barbeques. Definitely a keeper! Thanks Mark! ~Manda

A variation of the good old broccoli salad. I added 1/4 cup of cider vinegar to the dressing and then was very happy.
