Ingredients

YOU CAN HALVE THE INGREDIENTS OR OMIT SOME FOR A SMALLER SALAD. USE WHAT YOU HAVE ON HAND. I USED ALL OF THIS. :)

2 can(s)
chick peas drained
1 c
broccoli small florets
1 c
cauliflower, small florets
1/2 c
celery chopped
1/2
greenbell or red pepper chopped
1/4 c
sundried tomatoes julienned
1/4 c
sunflower seeds or pepitos or sliced almonds
1/2 c
julienned carrots
1/4 c
dried cranberries or golden raisins
3/4- 1 c
mayonnaise
3 Tbsp
white balsamic or rice wine vinegar
1-2 Tbsp
honey or agave
4 oz
cheddar cheese cubed small
salt and pepper to taste

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Chop all vegetables in a uniform manner add sunflower seeds, mayo, vinegar, sweetener. You can use sugar if you don't have agave or honey.
Season with salt and pepper.
Bag up the cheese and add at the last minute before serving so it won't get mushy although the cheese seemed to be fine the next day. I didn't want to take chances.
2
As I said this salad was put together on a whim. Everything I had came out of the cupboard. You could use almonds or pepitos instead of sunflower seeds. I was going to add bacon but have some vegetarians in our family and it was great without it. Even my husband liked it. Ate it as a snack later that night and a side with dinner the next day.
