Hey folks! I hope y’all had an amazing holiday weekend. I know I sure did. My family and I got to spend time with my lifelong friend and her family and it was fabulous. (You may recall my dear friend Jessica from a post I wrote last year. We made the cutest sign to announce her pregnancy.) While I was there, I picked up some great new recipes to share with you all. First on the list is this deliciously sweet Broccoli Cauliflower Salad. You guys are gonna love it. It’s a little sweet and a little salty from the bacon and it is oh so good.
Entertaining should be fun and not a hassle, right? I agree! My favorite part of entertaining is the food. Sometimes, I may stress myself just a bit over the menu. Ok, who am I kidding, I may stress myself a lot. The cooking prep work isn’t what gets me stressed. (I like to make that part as easy possible.) It’s usually coming up with what to cook next. I hate when I get in a food rut. That’s where my idea of a Panini Salad Bar was born. Easy prep and delicious food equals more fun with my friends!
Bacon Cauliflower Salad…I bet I had you at bacon!
I love anything with bacon! My husband isn’t a big fan of cauliflower but he absolutely loves this salad! He actually will go back for a second helping. I have a feeling it’s all because of the bacon. This Bacon Cauliflower salad is the perfect make ahead addition to your next cookout, potluck, or holiday. I promise it will be a hit…even with those that aren’t fans of cauliflower.
Cauliflower is one of those versatile foods that can really take on the flavor of what it’s mixed with. This salad gets devoured anytime I serve up this dish and it will feed a crowd. Continue reading

It’s an inexpensive salad to make, especially when you use up those summer veggies that are in abundance!
I’m on my ever present venture to try and eat lean. When I make a lean meal that I love, it ends up in my regular dinner rotation. We all know that a regular dinner rotation can become a bit stale. When that happens, I like to reinvent those meals that I love so much to add a little variety. What’s the saying…variety is the spice of life!
