Broccoli Salad

Broccoli is a staple in our house, we pretty much eat it every day, and before you ask, no I don’t get sick of it.

After a day out caching, we wanted something quick and easy.  Kebabs went on to the barbie, and I was in charge of the side dish.

It was then I thought, “hmm we haven’t had the no potato salad in a while”.  So I decided to whip this up.

This particular recipe is done with cauliflower, which don’t get me wrong I love, but one day I decided to make it with broccoli, and let me tell you it was life-changing.

The original recipe can be found here on Paleo Australia – Bacon & No Potato Salad.

I’ve also made this salad to be vegetarian, just don’t include the bacon.  Or keep it separate for those bacon lovers out there to put it on top.
