Broccoli Cauliflower Cucumber Salad

Broccoli Cauliflower Cucumber Salad also called Spring Salad (by me). It reminds me of spring when everything is blooming and it seems like the whole world is just green with all the bushes, flowers and trees.

This salad is so easy to make, so simple and only 7 ingredients with dressing if you count the salt. You can make it ahead of time and dress just before you’re ready to serve it.

It saves nicely in the fridge for days and doesn’t create any off flavors like many salads do. The texture and the flavor of this salad work together so well. That crunch is just waiting to happen.

In my little family, I’m the only one who eats this salad. My husband is not a big fan of broccoli and cauliflower and I’m not even going to say anything about kids. However, both of these ingredients are really healthy and good for your body.

I like to cut the broccoli and cauliflower down to smaller florets so the pieces fit nicely in my mouth :D. There is something about little florets; the salad looks more elegant and I think it’s even more polite to eat it this way instead of having your mouth overflowing with giant broccoli and cauliflower florets in front of the guests! 🙂

Broccoli Cauliflower Cucumber Salad Ingredients:

  • 2 medium broccoli heads
  • 1 medium cauliflower head
  • 4 medium cucumbers (or 1 large English cucumber)
  • 3 green onions
  • 1 pack dill (0.66 oz)
  • Marzetti simply dressed ranch (or Litehouse) to taste
  • pinch of salt – or to taste

How to Make Broccoli Cauliflower Salad:

1. Wash all vegetables & paper towel pat dry. Cut 2 medium broccoli heads into small florets and transfer to a large bowl. Cut 1 medium cauliflower head into small florets similar in size to broccoli and add to the bowl with broccoli. Dispose the cauliflower leaves. Cut 4 medium cucumbers into half and then slice onto a benriner mandolin into the bowl with salad. (make cucumber slices 2-3 mm in thickness). Finely chop 3 green onions and 1 pack dill.

Stir the ingredients in the bowl with a tablespoon until mixed well. Add Marzetti Simply Dressed ranch or Litehouse brand and a pinch of salt or to taste to the salad before serving. Refrigerate dressing-free salad until ready to serve. Enjoy!!
