If your broccoli wasn't crunchy raw, it wouldn't be crunchy after it was blanched, either.
That sounds like an awful lot of sugar.
If it were me, I'd let the vegies marinate in Italian dressing for a while, and then add Miracle Whip to taste. I think both contain high fructose corn syrup. You can always add a pinch of sugar later if you need it.

We get by with a little help from our friends

I think you are right, it was too sweet. Thanks for the suggestion!

I make this salad and will add cooked and cooled frozen peas as well. For the dressing I start with the mayo add a little sugar and vinegar and mix it up then taste. I never measure. I just add like tablespoons at a time until I get the flavor I want. I use this dressing for so many other salads as well and will adjust the sugar vinegar ratio depending on whether I want it sweet or tangy. The cauliflower sounds like an interesting addition. Some good suggestions here to change it up a bit. Will have to give some of them a try. Oh and for the record, I use either mayo or miracle whip which ever I have on hand and regular cider vinegar.

I could give up chocolate but I'm no quitter!
