Kids Will Eat

I'm always looking for ways to fix vegetables that the kids will eat happily.  Just made a yummy broccoli-cauliflower salad tonight that all but one of the seven gave a thumbs up.  Not too bad if only one didn't care for it, and my husband loved it.  Of course, he loves anything with a little sugar thrown in.

Broccoli-Cauliflower Salad

1 - 3 oz. package real bacon bits
1 large head fresh broccoli, chopped (or 2 small)
1 head fresh cauliflower, chopped
1/2 c. sunflower seeds (I used raw, unsalted)
1 cup creamy Italian dressing
1 1/2 Tablespoons white vinegar
1/4 c. sugar

Chop cauliflower and broccoli into bite size pieces.  Add bacon bits and sunflower seeds.  Mix together Italian dressing, vinegar and sugar.  Pour dressing mixture over fresh vegetables.  Refrigerate and allow to chill before serving.

  1. Have you met my kids? Carissa would definitely eat this, but I don't think the boys would - big or little. LOL!
