    Anyone make this? I love it. Especially on days like today. Makes no sense to eat anything cooked. I started making this a couple of years ago, it is very good for you and tastes great

    2 heads of fresh broccoli
    half a head of cauliflower
    bacon bits
    shredded cheddar cheese
    Sweet creamy italian dressing

    Cut the 2 veggies into bite size pieces in a large bowl.
    Combine shredded cheddar cheese bacon bits and sweet creamy Italian dressing and you are good to go.

    I usually boil 'em, mash 'em, put 'em in a stew.

    Try this if you want to feed an army

    1 head Broccoli
    1 head Cauliflower
    2 pints grape tomatoes
    2 cans black olives (one small one large)
    1 large jar (at least 32 oz) of green olives
    1 16 oz box of feta cheese (don't get crumbles they cheat you)
    1 bottle of Paul Newman's Olive Oil and Vinegar dressing.

    Cut up Broccoli and cauliflower to bite sized chunks, no stems in a LARGE tupperware bowl
    Drain and add all the olives
    Add both boxes of grape tomatoes
    Cut to crumbles the feta cheese and mix it all in.
    After mixed, pour in the dressing. Usually a third to half bottle does it or at least to taste.

    Feeds about 16 as a side dish... or live off it for a week for 2. It's best if left overnight to marinade.
