A Recipe: Mom's Broccoli, Cauliflower, and Carrot Salad

If you are looking for a fantastic Spring/Summer-type side dish for Easter Sunday, this is perfect. 

Mom's Broccoli, Cauliflower and Carrot Salad
1 head of broccoli 1 head of cauliflower
10-15 sliced and peeled babycarrots (I just buy the little prepackaged bags)
1/2 diced red onion
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup apple cider vinegar
3/4 cup mayo
Directions:  Wash vegetables.  Cut up broccoli, cauliflower, carrots and red onion.  Combine sugar, mayo and apple cider vinegar.  Pour the dressing over the vegetables, mix and refrigerate.

You may have to keep adding a little mayo, sugar, or vinegar until you get it to your taste.

Here's what you'll need:  
Wash and cut off the stems of the broccoli.  Cut the broccoli into bite-sized pieces.
Wash the cauliflower and cut into bite-sized pieces.
Slice up about 15 baby carrots.  
Measure out 3/4 cup mayo, 3/4 cup sugar and 3/4 apple cider vinegar and mixed it until all of the mayo absorbed.

You may have to add a little more of sugar, mayo, or vinegar and tasting it as you go to get just the right amount of sweet tanginess.
Dice 1/2 of a red onion and add to the mixture.  Then, pour the dressing over the veggies.
Here's what you'll get:
Once again, Mom's recipes are the best.  This is an absolute staple for all family gatherings in the summertime.  It is light, sweet and refreshing with a taste of tanginess from the mayo and vinegar. I have seen similar salads in which raisins are added, as well.  This recipe will definitely not disappoint!  It is awesome!!
Hope you enjoy!
*****(5 Stars)--This dish was fantastic! It will definitely become a part of our regular rotation and we will definitely have it over and over again!
