Backstory

Split pea recipe for broccoli salad, the is a classic recipe remixed.

Ingredients

  • ½ cup dried green split peas
  • 1 medium head cauliflower, trimmed and cut into bite-size florets
  • 2 ½ cups broccoli, trimmed and cut into bite-size florets
  • 1 medium red onion, chopped
  • 1 ½ cups cheddar cheese, diced
  • Red pepper, chopped (for a spark of color and flavor)
  • 3 slices crisply cooked bacon, crumbled
  • 1 cup grape tomatoes, sliced in half (optional)

Directions

  • Bring 2 cups of water to a boil. Add peas, reduce heat to a slow boil for approximately 25 minutes, until barely tender, drain and cool (1/2 cup split peas will basically double in size after cooking).
  • In a large bowl, mix together cauliflower, broccoli, onion, cheese, crumbled bacon and tomatoes. Add cooled peas.
  • Mix dressing together in a medium size bowl and check for taste before putting it on the salad. Add more lemon juice if you want the dressing to challenge your taste buds a little.
  • Cover and refrigerate prior to serving, anywhere from 3 – 24 hours for the best flavor.
