Broccoli Cauliflower Salad with Tangy Yogurt Dressing

 

BROCCOLI CAULIFLOWER SALAD WITH TANGY YOGURT DRESSING

Don’t be put off by the yogurt in the dressing for this Broccoli Salad. It’s a yummy salad with the tanginess of the dressing offset by the sweetness of the grapes. My neighbor, Sandy, brought me over a bowl of this and I just had to have the recipe. Great for a Memorial Day picnic!

Broccoli Cauliflower Salad:

6-8 slices bacon, cooked and diced – I used thick sliced bacon
1/2 head ea: cauliflower and broccoli, cut into florets and chopped
2 cups seedless red grapes, halved, or more to taste – I used more
1/3 cup diced red onion, or more to taste
1/2 cup pecan halves, chopped if you like
1 small English cucumber, diced
Shredded cheddar cheese to taste
Tangy Yogurt Dressing:

Now if your cauliflower and broccoli are real large, double the dressing – you may not need all of it but it’s good on slaw, too.

Whisk together and go to taste on ingredients:

1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt
1/2 cup real mayonnaise
1/3 cup red wine vinegar
1 tablespoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
Salt and pepper to taste

Pour dressing over salad ingredients and enjoy.

    I thought I got a BLT salad recipe from your website now I can’t seem to find it can you help?

      Well, Donna,
      I don’t think it was my site, but I do have a couple of good ones – did you want one w/pasta or without?
      Blessings,

        Oh gosh, it just dawned on me, Donna, that the recipe you want is already on my site and has been for a couple of months. My brain must have been frozen when I replied the first time. Anyway, there’s a nice photo of it, as well. Here’s the recipe again:

    Can I mix all the ingredients the night before or should I wait to put the dressing on before serving.4

    1. Rita Heikenfeld

      I would wait to put it on an hour or so before serving. But go ahead and mix the salad ingredients.
