Broccoli Cauliflower and Olive Salad

I have never been a huge green olive fan but for some reason this salad is irresistable.  I used martini olives marinated in dry vermouth.  I think this brings out the best flavor; Spanish Queen Martini Olives marinated with Dry Vermouth to be even more precise. It’s definitely a salty salad; but a nice change from the usual picnic salads when planning a cook out.

Broccoli Cauliflower and Olive Salad

  • 2 cups bite size broccoli florets
  • 2 cups bite size cauliflower florets
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup quartered olives (about 5 very large martini olives)
  • 1/8 cup olive juice
  • 2 hard-boiled eggs – peeled and sliced
  • 3 strips bacon – cooked and crumbled
  • black pepper

Mix together all ingredients in large bowl; I like to toss in bacon just before serving.  Serve immediately or refrigerate until ready to serve.

Enjoy ~ Kimberly
