Sunny Vegetable Salad

READY IN: 1hr 40mins
Recipe by Jeff Hammer

This is hands-down my favorite recipe to make for any family dinner. Sunny vegetable salad is too good for words, you'll see when you make it. It does take a bit of work doing everything from scratch (particularly the broccoli and cauliflower), but I guarantee you'll run out every time because everyone goes for seconds. I posted this recipe as it originally was, but my family always makes it with 1/3 cup instead of a 1/2 cup sugar and it's just as good.

Super flavor! This is a great salad and a wonderful excuse to make a bunch of bacon that accidentally gets eaten by the cook. ;) Be sure to make a full recipe, I scaled back to serve 4 and it barely hit the table before it was gone!! Nice work.
