Works for Me Wednesday

I am getting all adventurous in the bloggy kingdom and am now going to attempt participating in a blog carnival of sorts called "Works for Me Wednesday". Shannon at Rocks in My Dryer hosts this weekly festival of helpful hints. Sometimes there is a theme and sometimes it's just a free-for-all of tips with everything from toilet training to remedies for stinky towels!

This week the theme is 5 ingredient or less recipes. So here goes:

Broccoli/Cauliflower Summer Salad
1 head of broccoli, cut into small flowerettes
1 head of cauliflower, cut into small flowerettes
2 tomatoes, chopped or 1 pint of cherry or grape tomatoes
1 cup of cheddar cheese, cut into small cubes
Ranch dressing (at least 1/2 cup)

Place all vegetables and cheese cubes into a large bowl, pour in 1/2 cup Ranch dressing and toss to coat. Depending on the size of your broccoli and cauliflower heads, you might need to add more dressing. The salad shouldn't be swimming in the dressing, just nicely coated. Chill salad in refrigerator for a couple hours before serving. Enjoy!
