Cauliflower Pepper Salad is an addicting, low carb, combination of delicious flavors. Cauliflower, bacon, cheese, peppers and onions all combined with a creamy sauce. This salad Absolutely needs to go to your next potluck, game day party or Holiday celebration. This salad is a popular side dish at any event.
Our garden is a real pleasure for us. We enjoy growing all those gorgeous veggies. But using it all up at harvest can be a bit of a strain. This recipe is a favorite way for our family to enjoy our garden cauliflower and peppers. They are both so good! We absolutely love them together in this salad.
This is a wonderful harvest recipe. This salad has about as much flavor as you put in it. The peppers are a big part of that. Choose spicy peppers if you like some kick with your sweet and tangy dressing. We do, so I’m using Dave’s Cheyenne peppers. They are about a 4 on the pepper heat scale. That’s not terrifically hot but they do stand up and say Howdy!
Not into heat in your salad? Choose pretty, colorful Bells then. They will be wonderfully bright, sweet and juicy in this recipe.
The crunchy texture of the veggies with the creamy dressing and cheese chunks are pleasing and satisfying. This salad is similar to my Cheddar Bacon Broccoli Salad. They each tantalise the tastebuds with healthy crunchy veg and lots of tangy sweet flavor.
Put this salad on a potluck table and watch it vanish. I have had requests for this recipe every time I put it out. So here it is. If you haven’t ever made this popular salad, give it a try. I think your family will enjoy it.
Cauliflower Pepper Salad Recipe:
This Cauliflower Pepper salad is full of lovely healthy cauliflower, peppers and onion. To make this salad even better for you make my homemade Healthy Mayonnaise recipe or buy an Avocado oil mayonnaise. Avocado oil is an incredibly heart healthy oil. So you just made this salad a health food! Choosing organic over conventional peppers, or growing your own organics, as we do, actually adds nutrition to your vegetables.
We also recommend natural bacon without all the added nitrites. Here is an article that discusses the health benefits of naturally uncured bacon. You really need to consider natural smoked meats for your family. Yes, they are more expensive. But the flavor is superb, they are usually lower in salt than regular cheap bacon too. Best of all they do NOT have the added chemicals that make bacon so bad for us.
- Cut bacon into 1/2 inch pieces and fry in a large frying pan until thoroughly cooked. Drain on a paper towel until needed.
- Cut the cauliflower head into small bite size pieces cutting the florets tops off and breaking into small pieces. The remainder of the cauliflower dice into small pieces.
- Put the cauliflower into a large mixing bowl, with the peppers, onion, bacon and cheese.
(for the dressing)
- In a small bowl whisk the mayonnaise, sugar and vinegar until smooth. Pour over the salad and mix thoroughly.
- Chill an hour, then serve.
