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!
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.
