How to Make Cauliflower Salad Recipe

When I learned how to make a cauliflower salad recipe I found it is delicious with the added flavor of bacon or many other flavorful ingredients. Because of its mild taste it can easily be blended with many ingredients and other vegetables.


It also goes well with a creamy dressing or one with an oil and vinegar base. Many different spices can be added to give zest and flavor.


Cauliflower is grown in many colors like orange, green and purple, and white.; each offering a variety of health benefits. White cauliflower is the most common around here and the only one that I cook with. It is very good and makes a very pretty presentation when mashed or in salads. I learned how to make a cauliflower salad recipe for Christmas; it is good all year but it makes a very nice red and green presentation for Christmas and so easy to make.
