Remember this Broccoli Salad I posted a while back? It has become such a huge hit on my blog. It’s absolutely fantastic for parties and potlucks. I was making that broccoli salad recipe for a party recently and had bacon I needed to use. I added a few other ingredients along with the bacon and that is how this recipe was born. It was gone within a minute and all my guests wanted the recipe. The nice person that I am, I am sharing the recipe with you as well, and you are welcome:).

Can I just say that cauliflower and broccoli florets with tomatoes, corn, cheese and bacon pieces are a fantastic combination! . I especially love how colorful all the ingredients in the recipe are when together.

Being the visual person that I am, I think foods that are colorful are enjoyed more. I mean if I gave you a salad with only greens and boring tones and this beauty, I think you’ll agree, the brain plays a trick on you. You instinctively want to dig into the salad!

Can I prepare this salad in advance?

This cauliflower broccoli and corn salad can be prepared a day in advance, keep covered and refrigerated. Mix before serving.

We have guests at our house all the time – no joke, all the time. The last thing I want to do it be busy in the kitchen as my friends are enjoying each other’s company. I want to be in on the action, you know what I am saying.  I love that I can do all my chop-a-chopping the day before and even make my dressing. Then, before serving, mix everything and you have yourself a wonderful salad to serve your guests.

I hope you enjoyed this.

    Googled cauliflower, broccoli and corn to see what I could make and this recipe came up. So thankful it was easy and delicious. I missed out the tomatoes, added potatoes and boiled eggs, used frozen corn, cooked the veges and used aioli instead of straight mayo and didn’t have to bother with garlic. So mine was a warm salad. Hubby loved it too.

    I steamed the cauliflower and broccoli for a few minutes and cooled in iced water and tossed them just before adding the dressing and turned out delicious
