I don't know why I don't make this broccoli salad recipe more often. Whenever I'm at a party and there's a bowl of broccoli salad, I go back for seconds every time.
This version is a little different than most because we've added in cauliflower and blueberries, making this meal even more antioxidant-rich. When I find a recipe that is healthy and delicious, it's a win!
Broccoli is not only rich in fiber, but it's also high in vitamin C, vitamin K, B6, iron, and potassium. I really try to get most of my nutrients from food instead of supplements, and this broccoli salad recipe is so good, even your kids will love it!
Be sure to cook the bacon so it's really crispy because when you add it to the salad, it's going to soften up a little. If it's really crisp, it will still be delicious the next day (if there's any left!)
