Expert Tips

  1. Chop the broccoli and cauliflower into bite sized pieces - if they are too large, it will make this salad more difficult to eat.
  2. Fry the bacon until crisp, that way there will be that added salty crunch we all love!
  3. Try a Homemade Ranch Dressing - it is so much more flavourful than store bought.
