This Broccoli and Cauliflower Salad will quickly become a staple recipes! It’s always a crowd favorite, who knew people could love broccoli so much? It’s easy to make and perfectly refreshing on a warm summer day.


Broccoli never tasted so good! Raw broccoli can be totally boring but when you toss it into a salad with cheese and bacon incredible things just happen!

I didn’t create this version to be low calorie but I just never feel like 1 cup of mayonnaise is necessary on anything. I swapped out a lot of that mayo for fat-free Greek yogurt and went with light mayonnaise instead.



If you are looking to cut more calories you can cut back to 4 slices of bacon and reduce the amount of cheese a little and omit the sugar and you’ll still have a delicious salad!

Broccoli and Cauliflower Salad Recipe
Broccoli never tasted so good! Raw broccoli can be totally boring but when you toss it into a salad with cheese and bacon and cover it with a creamy dressing incredible things just happen!



Ingredients
Dressing

  • 3/4 cup fat-free plain Greek yogurt
  • 1/2 cup light mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 2 Tbsp red wine vinegar
  • 1 Tbsp granulated sugar
  • 1/4 tsp salt , or more to taste

Salad

  • 4 cups small diced broccoli florets
  • 4 cups small diced cauliflower florets
  • 8 oz bacon (about 8 slices), diced and sauteed until crisp and drained
  • 1 1/4 cups small cubed Colby Jack cheese (6 oz)
  • 1/2 cup chopped red onion , rinsed under water and drained (if it's a mild one you can add a little more)

Instructions

  1. In a medium mixing bowl whisk together all dressing ingredients. Cover and chill until ready to use.
  2. Add all salad ingredients to a salad bowl (I like to set aside about 1/4 of the bacon and red onion to sprinkle over the top at the end for more color, that's totally optional).
  3. Pour dressing over top then toss to evenly coat. Serve within and hour of adding dressing for best results.
