Cauliflower salad with bacon

I really like salads with cauliflower. This cauliflower salad with bacon is especially dear to my heart. We were introduced to it by my sister in law, Nadia. Ever since we tried it, it’s become a regular salad we make at almost every family gathering.

The salad is so quick to make and is a hit with adults and kids alike, which doesn’t always happen. Must be the bacon! 🙂 Because, well, because bacon makes everything so much better!

All the ingredients for bacon cauliflower salad recipe.

Iceberg lettuce is a classic for any easy salad. It’s affordable and goes with so many different ingredients. Your classic side salads with your favorite dressing, or fancying things up a bit like this salad. I love the added cheddar cheese with cauliflower and bacon. The dressing is a tangy sweet and goes so well with the remaining ingredients.

This is a salad you want to mix right before serving. Just like any salad that has iceberg salad, it will get soggy quickly. You don’t want to mix it ahead of time. You may definitely prepare everything even the night before, just be sure to mix it right before you want to serve it.

Don’t add all of the dressing, start with about 3/4ths of it and add more as needed. 🙂

    Cassie,
    It’s looks like a Mayonnaise bottle. Just says salad dressing instead of mayo:). Kind of has same look as mayo too. Let me know how you like the salad:^)..
