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. 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, just 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.
