I have mentioned before that I grew up in a family that tradition is important. When we find something that we like we stick to it and we don’t stray. This recipe is part of a tradition, I make it for Thanksgiving and Easter every year, just like clockwork.
And you know what no one complains. Everyone is just happy to see that the salad is sitting on the table waiting for everyone to dig into it. Even though there is a ton of food for these holidays there is never a lot of this salad left in the bowl at the end of the day.
This year I made it for the Labor Day weekend, a couple of our kids were at the house for the holiday. We made hamburger and hot dogs on the grill for dinner. I thought the cauliflower broccoli salad would be a great addition.
So yes, it a great addition to just about any dinner from Thanksgiving to grilling out.
