Broccoli Cauliflower Pepita Salad

Rated as 4.75 out of 5 Stars

"This is my homemade twist on the traditional broccoli salad. Pepitas (pumpkin seeds) give this salad a nutty, chewy-crunch, and the light, bright-tasting dressing accents the hearty veggie mix. A favorite at picnics and potlucks!"

A very nice recipe. I added bacon to make it even better! Also, lightly blanched broccoli and cauliflower to bring out the flavors.
