Looks delicious!

Bacon pieces enrich the taste of any salad and add the much beneficial protein to it. Broccoli is the "herb of God" as it is packed with so many nutrients. The salad looks very good on the above plate.

I'd have to leave out the onion for my wife who hates flavor.

Maybe switch for pickled green beans?

Catarina said...

I have never made this salad.

It looks good.

I add crasins and nuts to mine. It's one of my hubby's favorites.

Dewena said...

I do broccoli salad much like this but have never added cauliflower, what a great idea! My husband will love this one.

Amy Purdy said...

Oh this would be great! I make something similar that just has the broccoli, no cauliflower. I think the cauliflower would really add some wow to it. I will try this out.

Bob Bushell said...

Pretty salad, leave out the bacon.


Todo muy ssaludable. La parte que menos me convence es la del tocino, por su aporte de grasas.


Mary Kirkland said...

Oh I'm going to have to add bacon to my broccoli salad recipe. That sounds good.

Bacon afficianardos believe everything is better with bacon. This salad would float my boat without it. Thank you.

William Kendall said...

I'd go for that!

Very nice, I've just made cauliflower soup..

Lorrie said...

This sounds so good. I make something similar with sunflower seeds and apples added. Bacon in a salad is always a treat.

Another yummy one.
I reviewed a cook book for diabetics. I passed it on to my client. She has it, just going on the needle, a daughter and SIL, and another daughter or two has it, as well. It's all in the cooking. You do good work here.

I actually made this recipe and didn't care for it. Nor did anyone else in my household. On top of that, it didn't look anything like the picture.

Maybe it's the sour cream. Unless you really love sour cream, I'd pass on this one.

Hi Steve, many thanks for your comment and feedback.
I always think it good to try out recipes, and of course what one person may like another one will not. Although sorry it didn't turn out like the picture!
Yes, this recipe does use sour cream for the sauce, and if you are not a lover of it, I can understand …

I put this recipe up today, you may prefer it?

It's always good to receive, read and share them.

All the best Jan
