Why I Love This Recipe

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

Ingredients You'll Need

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)


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.
