What a delicious salad this turned out to be!  Try it for yourself!  There are lots of raw vegetables in this salad. Ranch dressing, as you can guess, will go great with all these raw veggies (broccoli, carrots, cauliflower, red onion).  If you don’t want to use Ranch, the other option is to combine mayo with sour cream (or Kefir or Greek yogurt) and then mix it with softened honey and lemon juice (preferably freshly squeezed)! You choose which dressing you want with this salad.

It’s really important to dice broccoli and cauliflower into really small and fine pieces so that the dressing coats more surface, and that makes the salad even creamier and more delicious!

I used store-bought sliced carrots, and I cooked my bacon in the oven.  It’s really an easy recipe, once you have all the ingredients.  Just assemble everything together and mix it with the dressing!
