Warm Cauliflower Bacon Salad with a Buttery Hot Apple-Cider Vinaigrette

There are recipes with cauliflower but not like this Warm Cauliflower Bacon Salad topped with a luscious buttery hot apple cider vinaigrette. This cauliflower salad IS the best cauliflower salad recipe for the upcoming seasons and we’re sharing the recipe with you today. This warm cauliflower salad is so good that my wife ate the entire dish before touching her meal. She said it was just so hard to stop eating it because the cauliflower and bacon pair up so nice together. It’s true.   Finally cauliflower is reasonably priced.   Cauliflower has dropped in price from $8.00 a head to $0.88 on sale at grocery stores and farmers markets across Canada. The winter will bring a spike in price for cauliflower and other imported vegetables because of the Ontario climate but don’t be afraid to add it to your grocery list. Cauliflower is very nutritious. This cauliflower bacon salad is perfect for Autumn and Winter or even serve it at Thanksgiving or Christmas dinner as a side-dish. My wife enjoys a low-carb lifestyle which means our son and I also enjoy the odd recipes with her because they are that delicious. I’m not a huge fan of raw cauliflower […]
