Cauliflower Bacon Salad

This recipe is quickly becoming my favorite side dish. My daughter loves it and she isn't even on a diet!  I plan on bringing it to barbecues and family events instead of potato salad.

Makes 8 servings (1 cup each)
WW+ points:  3

  • 1 medium head cauliflower, broken into small florets
  • 8 slices bacon, cooked
  • 1 cup shredded 2% cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup green pepper, sliced or chopped coarsely
  • 1 cup red pepper, sliced or chopped coarsely
  • 1/2 cup frozen peas, uncooked
  • Onion, either green onions or red onion, in an amount to your preference, chopped
  • 1 cup mayonnaise light (35 calories per T)
  • 4 teaspoons granulated sugar substitute

1. In 8 cup container, combine cauliflower, peppers, onion, cheese and bacon
2. In bowl stir sugar substitute into mayonnaise and then add to container over vegetables
3. Stir together and refrigerate several hours or overnight, stirring a few times
4. Stir before serving
Salt and pepper can be added (I prefer mine a bit sweet so I don't add salt)
You can use either one whole green or red pepper if preferred, I just like using half of both for the color.
No need to cook the peas, they defrost in the salad in a short period of time
