Red, White & Green Salad

Serves 10 to 12.

Different from the Layered Salad but with many of the same ingredients, this contains no lettuce. It's healthy and low carb - if you're watching your carbohydrates, don't use low-fat sour cream or mayonnaise, use the real stuff! This is great for taking to picnics.

1 bunch broccoli (about 4 cups finely chopped)
1 bunch cauliflower (about 4 cups finely chopped)
1 large onion (about 1 cup finely chopped)
3-4 ribs celery (about 1 cup finely diced)

2 large red bell peppers, seeded and finely chopped
1/4 cup chopped fresh basil leaves

1 small (8-oz.) container sour cream
3/4 cup real mayonnaise (NOT Miracle Whip!!)
1 teaspoon garlic powder

Salt & Pepper to taste

12 slices cooked bacon, crumbled

Combine finely chopped broccoli, cauliflower, onion, celery and sweet red bell pepper in a very large salad bowl. Stir in sour cream and mayonnaise, sprinkle with garlic powder, salt and pepper. Toss all ingredients together. Top with crumbled bacon. Chill for up to 24 hours before serving.
