This Broccoli Cauliflower Salad is one of my FAVORITE go to salads. This salad is quick and easy to throw together. This salad is gluten free, dairy free, low carb and can be altered with minor modifications (listed below) to be Paleo and Whole30 complaint. Broccoli Cauliflower salad is loaded with crunch and is filled with delicious flavors in each and every bite. I like to pair this salad with grilled meats, barbecue sandwiches, or just eat it by itself for a lighter meal.
In my younger years, I used to pass up any salad with broccoli or cauliflower in it. I was so used to having these vegetables in a traditional way and didn’t realize how delicious they could be in a salad. I remember the first time I tried this salad, I was sold. A lot of my food inspiration comes from food I eat and I knew once I tired broccoli cauliflower salad I had to recreate it myself. I love new and fun flavor combination for salads.
