Veggie Chopped Salad

This is a little different from the other salads on my blog.  But equally delicious.  It makes a fairly large salad so it would be great to serve at a holiday or a summer get-together.

  • 3 cups finely chopped fresh broccoli
  • 3 cups finely chopped cauliflower
  • 3 cups finely chopped celery
  • 2 cups frozen peas (about 8 oz.), thawed
  • 6 bacon strips, cooked and crumbled
  • 1 1/3 cups mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 tablespoon cider vinegar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup salted peanuts

In a large bowl, combine the first five ingredients.  In a small bowl, mix mayonnaise, sugar, cheese, vinegar and salt until blended.  Add to salad and toss to coat.  Just before serving, stir in peanuts.  Refrigerate leftovers.

12 servings.
