How to Make Bacon Cauliflower Salad


This salad has a nice blend of tastes and textures, and is a good way to serve fresh cauliflower. Here is how to make a bacon cauliflower salad.

Things You'll Need

  • Salad:
  • 1 head chopped iceberg lettuce, coarsely shredded
  • 1/2 head cauliflower, in bite size pieces
  • 1/2 pound sliced bacon, cooked and crumbled or
  • 3/4 to 1 cup real bacon bits
  • 3/4 cup shredded cheddar or Monterey Jack cheese
  • 4 green onions, sliced with tops
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried tarragon
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried chives
  • 2-3 teaspoons milk
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Pan-fry the bacon strips in a large heavy skillet for about 8 minutes or until crispy, turning them once. Remove them from heat, drain them on the paper toweling and set them aside.

  • Meanwhile, chop the lettuce, cauliflower and green onion on a cutting board. Pour them into large mixing bowl.

  • Add the bacon and cheese and toss it all together well. Cover the bowl tightly and refrigerate for up to 3 hours if not serving immediately.

  • In a small bowl, stir together the dressing ingredients with a fork or whisk.

  • When ready to serve, pour the dressing into a small bowl and place it alongside the salad. Thin it with a little additional milk if necessary.

Tips & Warnings

  • Don't omit the tarragon—it adds a nice flavor, plus the herb helps prevent gas, a potential side effect with cauliflower.
