Low Carb Broccoli Cauliflower Salad

We eat pretty low carb most days and I’m always looking for great low carb snacks. This Low Carb Broccoli Cauliflower Salad recipe is one I eat as a quick meal, side dish, or snack. Whenever I need something convenient to nibble on this is one of my go to recipes.

I’ve found that having dishes like this in the fridge and ready to go is the key to being successful on low carb, or any diet for that matter. The key to any eating plan is taking a little time in advance to make it  convenient to eat that way. All too often, it’s the food that is the worst for us that is the most readily at hand so I try to counter that and go in the opposite direction when I’m working on eating healthier.
