CREAMY BROCCOLI, CAULIFLOWER, CORN, BACON SALAD

Creamy Broccoli, Cauliflower, Corn, Bacon Salad with Sliced Carrots, Diced Red Onions, and shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese.  There are 2 salad dressing options: Ranch dressing made with mayo/sour cream combination  or super delicious homemade creamy dressing without Ranch – you choose!



What a delicious salad this turned out to be!  Try it for yourself!  There are lots of raw vegetables in this salad: Broccoli, Cauliflower, Corn, Carrots, Red Onions.

Ranch dressing, as you can guess, will go great with all these raw veggies.  If you don’t want to use Ranch, the other option is to combine mayo with sour cream (or Kefir or Greek yogurt) and then mix it with softened honey and lemon juice (preferably freshly squeezed)! You choose which dressing you want with this Creamy Broccoli and Cauliflower Salad.

It’s really important to dice broccoli and cauliflower into really small and fine pieces so that the dressing coats more surface, and that makes the salad even creamier and more delicious!

I used store-bought sliced carrots, and I cooked my bacon in the oven.  It’s really an easy recipe, once you have all the ingredients.  Just assemble everything together and mix it with the dressing!
