Cauliflower Salad

May 2, 2019

Hello blog friends.  HAPPY MAY!

I am on a Cauliflower kick.  I posted a recipe back in April for Roasted Cauliflower and Pasta that is so easy to make and it tastes delicious.

Well, in our house we all love eating salads in the summer or any time of the year for that matter.
How about you?  Do you like eating salads?

I have this really delicious salad to share with you.  It's a Cauliflower Salad.

I enjoyed eating this cauliflower salad with a small lettuce salad on the side for my lunch.


You could even serve this salad as a side dish with your fish, chicken, or steak dinner.

This cauliflower salad is a great change from having macaroni salad, coleslaw, or potato salad.  The secret to this salad is that there are no potatoes in it, so it makes it lighter and a little healthier to eat.

This recipe calls for six slices of bacon.  You can make baked bacon using my easy recipe here.

I hope you all enjoy this salad as much as my family does.  You'll want to make this a new side dish for your lunch or main meal.

You can even double this recipe for the salad if you are hosting or going to a big party. 



1 bag of frozen riced cauliflower - cooked and cooled
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1/3 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup red onion - chopped
6 slices bacon - for baked bacon (See Recipe) - diced
2 hard-boiled eggs - cooled, peeled, and diced
1 teaspoon mustard
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper


Add cooked and cooled riced cauliflower to a large mixing bowl.  Fry or bake 6 slices of bacon, for baked bacon (see recipe at the above link in the recipe) let cool and cut up into small pieces.  Add all the remaining ingredients to the bowl of cauliflower.  Stir well to combine.


I was inspired to make this salad by visiting a while ago @ramblingsofasoutherngirl on Instagram who posted a photo of cauliflower salad.
