  • 1 (12 ounce) package bacon

  • 6 cups broccoli florets

  • 6 cups cauliflower florets

  • 2 cups slivered almonds

  • 1 ½ cups golden raisins

  • 1 cup grated sharp Cheddar cheese

  • 1 medium red onion, finely chopped

  • 2 stalks celery, finely chopped


  • 1 cup mayonnaise

  • 1 cup sour cream

  • 1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened

  • ½ cup white sugar

  • ¼ cup lemon juice


  1. Place bacon in a large skillet and cook over medium-high heat, turning occasionally, until evenly browned, about 10 minutes. Drain bacon slices on paper towels until cool enough to handle, then chop into small pieces.

  2. Place bacon in a very large bowl with broccoli, cauliflower, almonds, raisins, Cheddar cheese, red onion, and celery.

  3. Whisk together mayonnaise, sour cream, cream cheese, sugar, and lemon juice in a separate bowl until creamy. Pour over broccoli-cauliflower mixture; stir until well combined. Refrigerate until flavors have melded, at least 30 minutes.
