  • 2 broccoli crowns (chopped)
  • 1 cauliflower head (chopped)

  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese

For the dressing:

  • 3/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 tsp salt


Step 1

To start, rinse off the cauliflower and broccoli and chop them into bite-size pieces. Place 1/2 lb of bacon into a sheet pan and bake it under 435 degrees F for 15 to 18 minutes. Next, put the chopped cauliflower in a pot with a steamer basket to steam them. Set the burner to high heat, let it boil, then lower the heat and steam it for four minutes. Transfer it to a paper towel-lined bowl and then steam the chopped broccoli next. After this, dice half of 1 large red onion and add them to the same bowl together with the steamed cauliflower and broccoli.
