Serves8

Easy

Ingredients

  • 2 cups frozen peas
  • 1 pound fresh cauliflower
  • 1 pound fresh broccoli
  • 4 strips bacon, chopped
  • 1/2 cup light-mayonnaise
  • 1/2 cup plain yogurt
  • 1/2 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 cup sharp cheddar, in 1/2-inch dice
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

Instructions

  1. Cut cauliflower and broccoli, chopping the stems and cutting flowerets into bite-size pieces.

  2. In a large pot, bring 4 quarts of water and 1 tablespoon salt to boil. Drop peas into the water for 1 minute, then lift with a slotted spoon, or wire mesh sieve, and drain.

  3. In the same boiling water, boil cauliflower for 3 minutes, then lift out and drain, running under cold water to cool the vegetables.

  4. In the same boiling water, boil the broccoli about 2 minutes. Then, drain and cool the broccoli.

  5. In a small frying pan, cook the bacon over medium heat until browned and lightly crisp. Drain well on paper towels.

  6. When vegetables have cooled, toss with the dressing (light-mayonnaise, yogurt, sugar, and salt). Taste for seasoning. Add bacon and cheese, and stir gently until well mixed.

  7. Cover and chill in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour or up to 1 day before serving.

Notes

Using a smoky-flavor bacon allows the flavor to carry through the salad even in a smaller amount. You can also substitute 1 cup of cubed smoked ham or smoked turkey instead of the bacon.

The step of blanching the vegetables has two effects: 1) It makes the salad more colorful as the peas and broccoli brighten in color from the blanching, and 2) The veggies' flavor is less pronounced after this brief cooking, making the salad more attractive to some people who don't like the strong flavor of the "cabbage vegetables."

The vegetables need to be chilled before stirring in the mayo for food safety reasons.

This would be a great dish to pass at a spring or summer potluck gathering, or even for an outdoor picnic! It tastes like you got it from a gourmet deli, but at a fraction of the cost. If you don't really care for the rawness of the fresh broccoli, you could always blanch it for a few seconds, drop it into an ice bath, and squeeze it dry with a tea towel.

Delicious. I use a similar recipe and also add finely chopped or spiralized carrots for extra color. I add more sugar and vinegar for a zesty flavor and omit the salt. The diced cheese and chopped bacon are great additions to this recipe. This is a good dish to bring to pot lucks.
