Broccoli Cauliflower Salad

Broccoli Cauliflower salad is without a doubt a fantastic meal; it’s one of my favorites, created with raw cauliflower, bacon, and onion, as well as a sweet basil dressing that will keep you coming back for more.

I had no idea what I was doing when I tried this dish for the first time. This recipe has always been suggested to me, so I decided to give it a try. I made as little preparation as possible to prevent wasting food if it didn’t come out properly or if it was overhyped. It turned out well, much to my surprise. I was mistaken, and I felt like I could have done a better job of preparing. I couldn’t stop myself from wanting more. After my initial attempt, it was the first thing I ate the next day.

To be sincere, you might need to do some preparations that are stressful like breaking down the cauliflower, the hardest aspect of this dish is really breaking down the cauliflower. To do so, cut around the stem and remove as much of the core as possible by removing the leaves at the base. Break the head into smaller pieces with your hands, then slice the florets and remove the long fibrous stalks.

It’s also a recipe that may be tailored to your preferences. To add some heat, slice a jalapeno (pickled or fresh!) To make it vegetarian, leave out the bacon and add some ground spices instead. I’ve never tried it, but I believe a pinch of Old Bay has potential.
