Mom's Favorite Veggie Salad

Brought to you by Sarah at lifeshouldcostless.com

*Please make sure to wash and dry your veggies before you begin*


In a large bowl (I used a 4 Quart Pyrex Bowl) add the following:


3 to 4 Cups Chopped Cauliflower

3 to 4 Cups Chopped Broccoli

3 to 4 Cups Chopped Carrots

2 Cans Olives Drained and Sliced

1 lb Cheddar Cheese Cubed


Mix these two ingredients together and then pour over and toss the veggie and cheese mixture:


½ tsp Minced Garlic or 1/8 tsp Garlic Powder

1 (12 oz) Jar Ranch Dressing


This salad is now ready to serve! If you need to make it ahead of time, it's a good idea to keep the cheese separate and then mix it in right before serving. Otherwise the cheese can start to get soggy if it's been sitting in the ranch for more than a day or so. Cover tightly and keep refrigerated.  


*You can also add your desired amount of cherry tomatoes, but we usually don't. It get's a little on the expensive side to make the more ingredients you add and that is one that can be omitted.*


**You can chop everything to your desired size (you can add more of whatever you want too, I just like a pretty even mix of everything). Most of my veggies and the cheese were cut or cubed to about marble size.**
