Great-Grandma Maida Dixon made this salad for family gatherings. I think of her every time I make. It's sooo good. It needs to be placed in the refrigerator to allow the flavors to meld. It really is worth the wait.
Sweet red bell peppers are sauteed with garlic and spicy cayenne pepper, then simmered with sour cream and chicken broth to make a hot and luscious pasta sauce. Finish with Parmesan cheese and toss with cooked pasta.
Lots of variety and crunch in this tasty salad. Spanish peanuts, crumbled bacon, and dried cranberries mingle with fresh broccoli, cauliflower, and celery. The whole shebang is tossed with a mayonnaise, vinegar and oil dressing with a hint of sugar and grated onion.
