Have I mentioned I am having a love affair with cauliflower? It has a ton of health benefits too. It’s high in fiber and is great source of antioxidants. It also strengthens your immune system and may help reduce the risk of cancer. Cauliflower contains vitamin C, which helps with collagen production, and vitamin K, which may help prevent bone loss. Did I mention I have been a longtime fan of broccoli, too? So this low carb and keto-friendly broccoli cauliflower salad is my idea of heaven. Besides, it has bacon so it’s nearly perfection.
Vegetable salads are always welcome at a summer BBQ or potluck party, so why not bring something that your friends will devour? Besides, there is no cooking involved which is always an added bonus. So without further ado here is my healthy broccoli cauliflower salad recipe.
