    I recently had dinner at an Amish home in Shipshewana, IN. Among the items served was a cold broccoli and cauliflower salad with a delicious white creamy dressing... it was wonderful! I have a few Amish cookbooks but have failed to find this recipe. Does anyone recognize this recipe? Thank you.

    Thank you for your quick reply but it did not have onion or bacon in it. It seemed to have been just broccoli and cauliflower with a wonderful tasty creamy white dressing. I might try using the dressing recipe if no one else has the recipe that I have described.
    Thank you, I appreciate your help!!

    Try contacting the place that you ate it. Many times, especially not for locals, they will share the recipe. :)

    do you visit very often?

    We purchased a home in Shipshewana about eight years ago. Unfortunately I don't get there as often as we used to, but we hope that our retirement is just around the corner and we intend to make Shipshewana our permanent home. We love it as well...it is always hard for us to leave! I was sorry to have missed you there recently Craftybear!

    Is Shipshewana a good place to visit? My husband and I are heading to most likely Niagara Falls area next week. I am looking for places to visit. We will be traveling in our RV. We just want to go and relax.
    Any suggestions will be useful.

    I just visited a friend in Tennessee and she served this salad and gave me the recipe. Similar to others. It did have onions but cut so small you would not know they were there. She used a vitamix to chop everything and it was made in a jiffy. She did not add bacon or nuts and it was delicious. Probably equally so with those additions. Figure I can do without the bacon since it was still good.

    Dressing
    cup Splenda or sugar
    1 cup mayonnaise
    1 Tablespoon white vinegar, or more. I use only 1
    Mix and keep in refrigerator at least 3 hours

    Do not mix dressing into salad until ready to serve to avoid limp veggies.

    1 small head cauliflower
    2 bunches broccoli
    1 small onion
    *6 pieces bacon, fried and crumbled
    cup raisins or craisins
    * cup chopped pecans
    1 lg. can of mandarin oranges, drained

    Mix and keep in refrigerator until ready to serve

    sounds like a salad my family enjoys. Its broccoli, cauliflower, and we like cherry tomatoes with ranch dressing over it. Dosn't take much dressing. Apply small amounts at a time, tossing the vegs to coat them real well. This is very good.

    I have a cookbook that I purchased in Shipshewana a couple of years ago called 'A Taste of Shipshewana, A Collection of Local Recipes' and it has the following recipe:

    (I realize that this does have onion and bacon, but if you leave those out it could be what you are looking for.)

    Cauliflower Salad:

    1 head cauliflower, cut in flowerets
    1 bunch broccoli, cut in small pieces
    1 lb. bacon, crumbled
    1 medium onion, chopped

    Dressing:

    2 C. Miracle Whip
    1/2 C. sugar
    1/3 C. parmesan cheese

    Hope this helps!

    The dressing recipe above looks like what my Grandmother would make to put on her slaw. I always thought it was good but a few years ago I had to cut down on so many calories so I created this one and it is delicious.

    1/2 Cup plain yogurt (I use Fage Total 0)(fah-yeh) it has no
    fat, no cholesterol, 65 calories.
    1/2 Cup sour cream
    1/4 Cup mayonnaise
    2 Tablespoons sugar (I have been using Stevia lately)
    1 Tablespoon fresh squeezed lemon juice or more to taste.

    Blend it all together and use as the dressing on slaw, salads etc. I store it in the frig for several days to use.

    The broccoli and cauliflower salad sounds great. I've never made it, but i'm going to tonight. I know that in some Amish areas they really sugar everything to death, so I am going to try using Splenda or Truvia instead of sugar.
