Okay peeps – let me begin by saying photos to follow. (That’s sort of like saying ‘the check’s in the mail’ heh, heh, heh.) The photos will follow because I finished up the last of this yesterday. As I was finishing it off, I had a eureka moment – “Hey!” I said to myself. “This is PERFECT for Coffee Break with Liz and Kate!” That is sooo like me Please try to overcome.
This is a super quick, three-ingredient salad (sans any seasonings you’d like to use). It’s light, tasty, crunchy, and I’d like to think, good for you. Great as a side dish, afternoon snack, or even a light lunch.
Here’s what you’ll need:
- Cauliflower florets (or a head of cauliflower)
- Broccoli florets (or a head of broccoli)
- Light mayonnaise (or some bottled light ranch dressing)
- Salt and pepper (and any other seasonings you like) to taste
Here’s how to make it:
Wash veggies and shake off excess moisture. Using a food processor or veggie chopper, (or even a knife for that matter), chop the veggies into very small pieces. (I’m not sure why this salad tastes better with small bits of broccoli and cauliflower, I just know that it does. Trust me.) Mix in a small bit of mayo or ranch dressing and toss well, adding the dressing of choice a little bit at a time until veggies are well coated, but not drenched Season with whatever you like, taste-testing along the way.
How easy (and tasty!) is that? I promise you won’t be disappointed! If you’re feeling really inventive and want to kick this one up a notch, here are a few add-in ideas:
- shredded cheese
- bacon bits
- sweet bell peppers
While you’re at it, you may want to come up with your own add-ins. If so, let us know! Meanwhile, Happy Eating!
