Broccoli Bacon Salad

1 Bunch Broccoli (tops & some stems) chopped in small pieces
1/2 head cauliflower (tops) chopped in small pieces
1 lb. bacon cooked and crumbled
2-3 oz. cans of pecan pieces (fresh is best and I’ve also used walnuts)
1/2 large purple onion chopped in small pieces
3-4 stalks celery chopped in small pieces
3/4 jar of Marzetti’s cole slaw dressing
1 8oz. pkg. of shredded cheddar cheese (I use sharp cheddar)
Chop everything into small pieces (as indicated above) and toss with dressing
Serve as side dish or in pita bread.

Hints:  If you want to take it to a party it is easier to chop and mix everything and put in ziploc bag for transpor and chill the jar
of Marzetti’s then mix when ready to serve.  Also, chop the bacon first then fry it like ground hamburger (it’s sooo much easier and quicker)
