Salads, Side Dishes

Broccoli Cauliflower Salad

Every BBQ, summer picnic or cookout needs a salad! I usually make pasta salad or ask my mom to make macaroni salad (I haven’t perfected her recipe yet!), but now this salad is going to be my go-to recipe! Today’s #CookOutWeek recipe features broccoli, cauliflower, cheese and bacon in a creamy, tangy sauce! I love the crunch of the veggies – plus you can’t go wrong with bacon and cheese! My kiddos were iffy on it, but ended up devouring it after their first bite!

Broccoli Cauliflower Salad | Join Us, Pull up a Chair

3/4 cup fat-free plain Greek yogurt
1/2 cup light mayonnaise
1/4 cup honey
2 Tbsp red wine vinegar
1 Tbsp granulated sugar
1/4 tsp salt , or more to taste
4 cups small diced broccoli florets
4 cups small diced cauliflower florets
8 sliced bacon, cooked until crisp and then diced
1 1/4 cups small cubed Colby Jack cheese
1/2 cup chopped red onion

In a small bowl, combine the yogurt, mayo, honey, vinegar, sugar and salt. Mix until combined. Place in the refrigerator until ready to use.

In a medium bowl, add the broccoli, cauliflower, bacon, cheese and red onion. When ready to serve, toss with the dressing. A tip I recently learned – if your red onion is a little too strong, run it under cold water and it will take the “bite” out. Serve immediately.

  1. Thanks so much for stopping by and linking to First Monday Favorites. And I think I need to go get some broccoli to go with the cauliflower I have in my fridge. That salad looks amazing.
