You won't have to ask twice to get your kids to eat their veggies with this creamy salad side. Dried cherries add sweetness, toasted pecans offer crunch, and bacon crumbles infuse the dish with flavor. The store-bought light coleslaw dressing will save you time and effort.

Time-saving tip
: Purchase precut, ready-to-use broccoli and cauliflower florets. Prepare salad and refrigerate for up to three days before serving.

Makes 10 servings (about 3/4 cup each)

Ingredients

For salad:
3 cups small broccoli florets
3 cups small cauliflower florets
1/2 cup chopped red onion
2 tablespoons thinly sliced green onion
1/3 cup sliced radishes
1/2 cup shredded carrot
1/2 cup chopped pecans
3/4 cup dried cherries
2 tablespoons ready-to-use bacon crumbles

For dressing:
3/4 cup store-bought lower-fat coleslaw dressing

Directions

  1. Place pecans on a baking sheet, and toast them in a 375 F oven for about 10 minutes, or until lightly browned.
  2. In a large bowl, combine all ingredients except dressing. Toss well.
  3. Add dressing to vegetable mixture, stirring lightly until all pieces are coated.
  4. Cover and chill for at least 2 hours before serving.
  5. Stir before serving.
