Broccoli and Cauliflower Salad

I'm always looking for new ways to make cauliflower and broccoli because they are my favorite 2 vegetables.  I believe NCBeaches posted this to her Pinterest page, and I repinned it.  If that's not the case, I don't know where I found it. 

Anyway D made it, and it came together very quickly.  He thought it tasted like sweet vinegar and I thought it tasted like Russian Dressing.  Both of us liked it but neither tasted the Old Bay (so maybe more next time?).

We had with Bottle O' Beer Chicken Thighs
Would have again.

Number of servings: 4

1/4 red onion, thinly sliced
2 slices bacon, cut in small pieces, cooked to crisp
1/2 bunch broccoli, cut into small florets (about 1 1/2 cups)
1/2 small head cauliflower, cut into small florets (about 1 1/2 cups)
2 tablespoons sugar
1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
1 tablespoons vegetable oil
1/4 cup light mayonnaise (we used Hellman's)
1/2 teaspoon Old Bay (perhaps use more)
1/2 tsp Kosher salt
1/4 tsp ground black pepper

Place the bacon, broccoli, cauliflower and onions in a large salad bowl.

In a small bowl, whisk the sugar, vinegar and Dijon mustard. Slowly drizzle in the oil, whisking to make an emulsion. Mix in the mayonnaise and seafood seasoning. Season with salt and pepper.

Pour the dressing over the vegetables and toss.
