"I think I originally found this on the Food Network; but, there are versions of this all over the internet. I had been looking, to find a recipe that didn't have all the sugar or cheese that most had. And, after playing around with the base recipe; this was the end result. Makes a great potluck dish; and, perfect for a BBQ."

Step 1

Bacon ... You can cook the bacon using any method you like. Oven, stove top, or microwave. Personally, for this small of an amount, I dice the bacon; then, pan saute. It only takes 3-4 minutes until brown and crisp. Then, transfer to a plate lined with a paper towel to drain.

Step 2

Dressing ... Add the Miracle Whip (salad dressing), oil, vinegar, dijon mustard, sugar (which is optional), all purpose seasoning, salt, and pepper to a small bowl; and, mix to combine.

Step 3

Vegetables ... Add the broccoli, cauliflower, carrots, onion, scallions, bacon, and dressing to a large bowl and toss. Check for seasoning once again; and. add more salt and pepper if necessary. Cover with plastic wrap, and refrigerate at least 30 minutes or longer, until chilled.

Step 4

Serve and ENJOY! ... Transfer to a serving bowl and dig in.
