Because obviously bacon.
I’m in full summertime side dish swing right now, do you do that? Dinners are random leftovers from parties with some grilled chicken and a side salad, done and done. I’m always looking for new + healthyish side dishes because potato salad from the grocery store is great BUT, you know? You know. The but(t) gets big sometimes. Heh. My grandmother makes a version of this salad and brings it to family functions a few times per year, and we all love it. She switches up the nuts she uses, whether or not there is bacon in it, etc, but the base is the same: broccoli, cauliflower, onion, and a creamy-but-light Greek yogurt dressing.
The yogurt is cut with mayo for flavor, so you can definitely use fat free yogurt or anything else you have around – even regular yogurt! The broccoli and cauliflower are totally raw so you can even make this the night before so the veg starts to soften somewhat, or you can make it right before you serve. It’s delicious even after a few days in the fridge!
