Creamy Southern-inspired broccoli and cauliflower salad with a few extra ingredients. Delicious. Fantastic for a potluck.
- 1 (12 ounce) package bacon
- 6 cups broccoli florets
- 6 cups cauliflower florets
- 2 cups slivered almonds
- 1 ½ cups golden raisins
- 1 cup grated sharp Cheddar cheese
- 1 medium red onion, finely chopped
- 2 stalks celery, finely chopped
- 1 cup mayonnaise
- 1 cup sour cream
- 1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
- ½ cup white sugar
- ¼ cup lemon juice
Place bacon in a large skillet and cook over medium-high heat, turning occasionally, until evenly browned, about 10 minutes. Drain bacon slices on paper towels until cool enough to handle, then chop into small pieces.
Place bacon in a very large bowl with broccoli, cauliflower, almonds, raisins, Cheddar cheese, red onion, and celery.
Whisk together mayonnaise, sour cream, cream cheese, sugar, and lemon juice in a separate bowl until creamy. Pour over broccoli-cauliflower mixture; stir until well combined. Refrigerate until flavors have melded, at least 30 minutes.
