This may not look like your typical salad, but I can promise you one thing — it tastes so much better than a bowl of just lettuce and dressing. A Mediterranean take on the traditional American broccoli-and-cauliflower salad, she's sweet, tangy, and crunchy. And if you like feta cheese and dried cranberries, you'll fall head over heels for this easy recipe.

Not only is this salad delicious and creamy, it's packed with tons of healthy veggies. Cruciferous vegetables, like broccoli and cauliflower, are rich in vitamins, fiber, and disease-fighting phytochemicals that you can't find in a regular salad made entirely of lettuce. Consuming them raw, such as in this salad, is also the best way to preserve all their amazingness!
