Do I Cook with a lot of Cauliflower, or What?!?!

Blogging most of your meals really makes you realize everything you cook. In an earlier post, I recognized that red peppers and onions made their way into many of my dishes. More lately, I noticed that cauliflower is also a very common ingredient. You’ve seen me roast, puree and do everything else with this versatile vegetable. In this recipe, all I do is cut it up.

This is a great salad. It has crunch, creaminess and bacon!

OK. Not the healthiest with Miracle Whip, bacon and sugar, but it sure tastes great.

Mix up the dressing.

    THANK YOU for cooking with cauliflower! Like anyone on coumadin (warfarin), I have to be careful with the vitamin K that I eat. I use a lot of cauliflower too since it is lower in K than broccoli, cabbage and other leafy greens and a little easier to manage that way – for my individual needs anyway. Thanks for the recipes! It gives me ideas and variety that I’d struggled to find before.

    I love cauliflower, but I like it best raw. I like the crunch ;)

    A little crispy bacon never hurts… but I think I’ll try this salad with greek yogurt sweetened with stevia (my new kick). Will let you know whether people like it :)

    Pat, Do you know how old this recipe is? I started making it when we were first married and it is still one of your Uncle Dave’s favorite salads! We enjoy your blog, especially when you talk about your background. Love, Aunt Liz
