This Creamy Broccoli Carrot Salad is both a palate- and eye-pleaser! The added crunch from the nuts and bacon to hearty vegetables are a welcome addition.
Rinse broccoli and cut florets into bite-size pieces. (Reserve the stems for another use.) Steam broccoli, then toss with salt, to taste. Cool completely.
Add cooled broccoli to a large bowl. Add cheese, carrots, walnuts, bacon, and onions. Toss to mix then refrigerate.
One to 2 hours before serving, combine mayonnaise, sour cream, sugar, vinegar, pepper, and ¼ teaspoon salt in a bowl and whisk to blend.
Pour dressing over the broccoli mixture and toss well. Taste, adding more seasonings, if desired. Cover and refrigerate until serving.
