Keto Broccoli Cauliflower Salad (Amish)

Are you looking for a delicious and easy way to add more raw vegetables to your diet? Today, I am going to share my keto broccoli cauliflower salad recipe, which will impress even the pickiest of eaters.

That’s right; even children will love this loaded keto broccoli cauliflower salad.

My keto Amish broccoli cauliflower salad uses fresh broccoli and cauliflower. This, of course, is a great benefit, not only because you’re getting more nutrition but also because there is no need to turn on the stove when the weather warms up. 

Besides the crunch of raw broccoli and cauliflower, it has a sweet, creamy, tangy mayo dressing, just like traditional Amish broccoli salad.

And because my salad has a generous amount of bacon, it’s no wonder it’s become a family favorite.

I also have a raw cauliflower salad recipe, making the perfect side dish.

My cauliflower broccoli salad uses equal amounts of mayonnaise and sour cream. The tanginess of the sour cream adds another level of flavor to this creamy dressing.

This keto-friendly salad has many flavor dimensions thanks to the combination of smokey bacon pieces, tangy vinegar, sugar-free sweetener, sour cream, and mayo. 

Bravenly premium supplements

For good measure, I also added chopped walnuts to further enhance the crunch of the raw cauliflower and broccoli florets. You could, of course, add pecans or crunchy sunflower seeds instead, or leave the nuts out entirely. 

I love how even people who don’t usually eat vegetables, including kids, gobble up this salad. It’s the easiest salad to share with a crowd.

The first time I shared my easy cauliflower and broccoli salad was during a church picnic; it seemed like the best kind of salad to share at a gathering.

Thankfully, I was correct because my church family went wild for it—so much so that it’s now a salad that is often requested for potlucks.

What’s not to love about a salad that is rich in flavors and gives us the benefits of raw vegetables?

Broccoli and cauliflower go very well together, and if we can throw bacon into the mix, well, that makes this creamy salad that much more special.

How To Make A Keto Broccoli Cauliflower Amish Salad?

You only need a few basic ingredients to make this keto Amish salad. Frankly, it’s quite easy to make, with the hardest part being chopping the vegetables. 

This summer salad’s net carbs make it a great recipe for anyone wanting all the flavor of this Amish favorite minus the carbs. 

Begin by making the salad dressing. Combine mayonnaise, sour cream, vinegar, chopped onion, sugar substitute, salt, and pepper in a medium bowl and mix until well combined. Set the dressing aside. 

For the salad, chop the broccoli and cauliflower, focusing on the florets and tender parts of the stems. 

Then, combine the chopped cauliflower and broccoli in a large mixing bowl. Pour the prepared dressing over the vegetables and stir to ensure they are fully coated. Next, gently fold in the bacon and nuts.

Customizing This Low Carb Amish Salad

This broccoli and cauliflower salad is easily customizable. If you would rather keep it nut-free, omit the nuts from the recipe. 

For a dairy-free option, substitute the sour cream for more mayo.

If you enjoy dairy, consider adding 1/2 cup of shredded cheddar cheese to the salad. This will add a little more protein and flavor.

How To Store Your Amish Keto Salad?

One of the reasons I love making this salad for potlucks or family gatherings is because it keeps well in the refrigerator. 

Making this salad ahead of time is not only a time-saver, but the flavor improves after being refrigerated for 24 hours. 

It’s also a great salad to make when meal planning because it keeps well in the refrigerator for up to three days.  Why not store some in mason jars for a quick lunch option during the week?

Benefits of Cruciferous Vegetables

Cruciferous vegetables like broccoli and cauliflower are a powerhouse for vitamin C and a great source of manganese.

Over the years, researchers have also identified several substances in cruciferous vegetables that have shown anti-cancer properties, such as isothiocyanate and phytochemicals.

These facts just further encourage enjoying this low-carb keto broccoli cauliflower salad.

I’ve seen versions of this salad floating around the internet. Unfortunately, many are loaded with sugar. Adding sugar makes no sense to me and blocks many of these vegetables’ great properties.

This is why a recipe like this low-carb keto broccoli cauliflower salad was in order.

My recipe uses full-fat mayonnaise and sour cream. Since going low carb and becoming a fat ketone burner rather than a sugar burner, I’ve learned how to embrace fats.

I find that my brain functions much better using ketones as fuel.

Gone are the days of fibro fog and walking around feeling like my skin was too tight for my body. At my worst, I had difficulty recalling my own phone number.

Indeed, the struggle was real. This is why I am grateful God pointed me to this lifestyle.
