AMISH BROCCOLI SALAD




AMISH BROCCOLI SALAD

This delightful salad with my own tweaks lends itself to some wonderful ideas for variations, so be sure to check them out at the bottom of the recipe! This recipe will definitely feed a crowd.  The Smoked Gouda lends an amazing flavor to the salad and would be especially great served at a barbecue.  The original recipe called for 1/2 cup of sugar.  Feel free to reduce the sweetener to taste, leave it out, or use your own preferred sweetener.

1 lb chopped broccoli (0.45 kg)
1 lb chopped cauliflower (0.45 kg)
  (chopped into very small chunks)
1/lb bacon, fried and crumbled (0.2 kg)
  (about 7 slices)
2 cups grated Smoked Gouda, OR (500 mL)
  Cheddar cheese, divided
1 cup mayonnaise (250 mL)
1 cup sour cream (250 mL)
Liquid sweetener (sucralose or stevia) to equal 1/cup sugar (125 mL)
1/tsp salt, OR to taste (2 mL)

In large salad bowl or trifle bowl, combine broccoli, cauliflower, bacon and 11/cups (375 mL) Smoked Gouda or Cheddar cheese.  In medium bowl, combine mayonnaise, sour cream, liquid sweetener and salt.  Stir the creamy mixture into the broccoli salad.  Sprinkle the remaining cheese over the top.  Cover the salad bowl with plastic wrap and chill before serving.

Variations:  Leave out the cauliflower and use only broccoli.  Add some chopped or sliced red onions.  Replace the cauliflower with diced cooked chicken.  Maybe add in some chopped, hard boiled eggs.
