Serves 8


250 g diced bacon

1 cup mayonnaise

¾ cup sour cream

1 tablespoon sugar

2 teaspoons salt

1 head broccoli chopped (or 1 packet of florets)

1 head cauliflower chopped (or 1 packet of florets)

½ cup red onion chopped

1 cup shredded cheddar cheese


Fry bacon until crispy, then drain and set aside.

In a small bowl, combine mayonnaise, sour cream, sugar, and salt. Taste and add more salt if needed.

In a large bowl, combine broccoli and cauliflower. Add mayonnaise mixture and stir all until veggies are well coated.

Fold in red onion, cheese, and bacon.

Serve immediately, or chill until cold.


Make it Keto: Instead of sugar, use your favourite granulated sugar substitute, like Xylitol. You can also leave out the red onion to shave off an additional 1-2 carbs per serving.

Make it Vegetarian: Leave out the bacon completely, or use a vegan bacon.

Make it Vegan: Use vegan versions of bacon, mayo, sour cream, and cheddar cheese.
