Crunchy Pea & Cauliflower Salad with Almond & Cranberries, Not to Mention the Bacon!

Crisp and delicious pea and cauliflower salad.
I love pea salad and am always on the look out for a good recipe for pea salad.  When I spotted this one on I knew I could with a bit of adaptation derive a great new salad we would enjoy.  Plus anything to get more of these fruits and vegetables into our meals.  This one hits several very good notes.  I will confess.  I love this salad!

Ingredients for Crunchy Pea & Cauliflower Salad:

16 ounces thawed frozen green peas
1 C. slivered almonds
1/2 C. raisins

1 C. good mayonnaise
2 T. sugar
2 T. vinegar
a good shake of ground cayenne pepper (to taste)
1/4 t. soy sauce
1/4 t. Worcestershire sauce
2 C. chopped cauliflower
1/2 C. sliced celery

Whisk together the mayonnaise, vinegar, sugar, pepper, cayenne pepper, soy sauce, and Worcestershire sauce in a small bowl to make the dressing.  Taste and correct seasoning as needed.  Assemble the salad remaining salad ingredients in a large bowl and top with the dressing.
