Here's a hefty salad which recipe came from a lady on another diabetes board. It makes a ton! I halved the recipe & still have nearly a gallon of salad! I'm taking her word for the carbs - I haven't recalculated it yet - but I gotta tell ya: 1½ cups of this will FILL YOU UP! :D

Broccoli Cauliflower Pasta Salad

1 head broccoli, cut up
1 head cauliflower, cut up
10 oz. pkg frozen peas
1 medium red onion, chopped (I prefer a bunch of thinly sliced green onions)
2 ribs celery, chopped
12 oz. bacon, cooked and crumbled
8 oz. pasta, cooked and drained
8 oz. cheddar cheese, shredded

Mix ingredients in a large bowl (make it a VERY large bowl) and set aside.

1 pint Hellman's mayonnaise
1 cup sugar (equiv Splenda, Truvia - etc.)
4 Tbsp vinegar
dash of salt (optional)

Mix ingredients well - I whip 'em a little to get all the mayo lumps out.

Add dressing to salad and refrigerate for at least 3 hours.

Okay, I recalculated today:
