Linda's Story

I saw this recipe on Hidden Valley Ranch website and it looked too good not to share.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

Notes from the Test Kitchen:
The addition of the cauliflower and nuts really make this dish special. Prepare to serve up seconds!

1 c
diced celery
1 c
chopped cauliflower
1 c
coarsely chopped cashews
3/4 c
diced green onions
3/4 c
hidden valley original ranch dressing
1/4 c
sour cream
2 tsp
dijon mustard

Nice summer salad.. loved it! I didn't add the bacon though, I think the taste was superb without it.

I like the sound of this recipe, but love the taste of UNCOOKED baby peas, so I will make without steming or cooking. If you like snap peas you'll get the idea.
