Broccoli, Cauliflower, and Cheese Salad

I have to admit, I’m not very good about eating all the veggies I should, especially raw veggies. But recipes like this make it easier for me! The ingredients in this Broccoli, Cauliflower, and Cheese Salad are coated with a simple dressing that’s sweetened with honey. In addition to the broccoli and cauliflower, there’s also some red onion, bacon, sunflower kernels, two cheeses, and some raisins, too, if you want.

It’s easy to put together (the most time-consuming part is preparing the cauliflower and broccoli florets) and makes a great side dish. And it’s definitely a very tasty way to eat your veggies!

As I mentioned in the recipe, the raisins are optional, but I really do like the punch of sweetness they add to this salad! Do you have a favorite veggie dish you like to make?
