Broccoli and Califlower Salad with Bacon

I am still pretending it is going to be spring just anytime now. I expect some might call it the onset of dementia or maybe worse maybe just being a dimwit!!! Oh well, as I sip my iced tea and enjoy this lovely salad. So be it. Seems a better thing to do than lament the snow and prospect of more.
Here is what you need for the salad:

3 crowns fresh broccoli separated and sliced into bite sized pieces
1/2 head fresh cauliflower separated and sliced into bite sized pieces
1/4 red onion diced
2 ribs of celery sliced
2 T. fresh parsley rough chopped
4 strips of bacon cut into small pieces and fried crisp, then drained
1/3 C. golden raisins
3 Oz. cheddar cheese grated

These ingredients make up the dressing:
1/2 C. Hellman's mayonnaise
1/2 C. Hidden Valley Ranch Dressing
2 T. sugar
1/4 t. salt
1/8 t. pepper

Assemble the vegetables in a mixing bowl and set aside. Stir the dressing ingredients together and pour over the vegetables. Stir in the golden raisins. Top with the bacon and cheese. Cover and refrigerate until serving time. Just before serving stir altogether and turn onto a large green cabbage or lettuce leaf.
