- If you prefer cooked broccoli and cauliflower, we recommend doing a quick blanch in boiling water and then cooling it in ice water. This will help keep the green color of the broccoli.
- For a vegetarian version, just serve the bacon bits on the side as a topping.
- For a sugar-free version, try swapping sugar with honey in equal amounts.
- Feel free to use any kind of onion you prefer, red onion also goes well with this salad.
- If you make this recipe ahead of time, top it with raisins and sunflower seeds upon serving for extra crunch.
