This broccoli cauliflower salad could be the easiest salad I’ve ever made. And it’s so good that I’ve made it 3 times in the last 2 weeks. It has a nice fresh crunch. And a little creaminess. And just enough smoky bacon flavor to make you really happy.

Broccoli Cauliflower Salad

Perfect Bacon, Every Time

I bake my bacon at 400 F on a foil-lined baking sheet for 20 or so minutes, depending on the thickness and how crunchy I want it to be, turning once. Easy clean up. You can drain off the grease for later use or let it cool and just wrap the foil up and toss it. No mess, no fuss. And the bacon is cooked perfectly, ready to go into a batch of broccoli cauliflower salad!

I’ve also made this salad a few times for road trips. It really holds up well to travelling.

I recently discovered Blue Plate mayonnaise, which I think is the best around. If you can’t find it locally you can pick it up online for a fair price.

Also try my delicious marinated vegetable salad and my tangy broccoli salad.
