Broccoli salad is another family favorite. My husband doesn’t typically like deli salads that have a ton of mayo in them, so creamy cole slaw and potato salad only make rare appearances in our household. But for some reason, he likes this broccoli salad. I think the sugar disguises the taste of the mayo enough for him to like it!
I haven’t made this too often as it’s readily available at any grocery deli around, but I decided to add some favorite Wisconsin ingredients and make my own version, packed with cheddar cheese, cranberries and bacon! A few Wisconsin favorites.
Evelyn was not a huge fan. Waaaay to many veggies in it for her. So she got spagetti instead. Ahhh, toddlers. How do you all get your toddlers to eat their vegetables?
- 1/2 head cauliflower
- 3 small heads broccoli
- 4oz cheddar cheese
- 2.8oz bacon bits
- 1 cup mayo
- 1/3 cup sugar
- 2oz dried cranberries
- 2oz walnuts
- 1-2 stalks green onion
- salt & pepper
- Chop cauliflower, broccoli, cheese, onions and walnuts and add to mixing bowl.
- Add bacon bits, mayo, sugar and cranberries.
- Mix and add salt and pepper to taste.
- Buy the real bacon bits or fry up your own and chop it in. Just don't buy the flavored bacon bits (yuck)!
