I first tried this recipe during a gathering of friends a couple of years ago. My friend Lauralee brought it, and it was sooo good.

- Fresh head cauliflower - Frozen peas - Bacon of choice - Mayo – Sour cream – Shredded colby jack cheese – Salt – Black pepper – Garlic, minced fine


Remove the core and leaves from the cauliflower. Cut into bite size pieces and place in a large bowl. Set aside.

Get started!

Thaw frozen peas and add to bowl. Mince the garlic and add to the bowl.

Cook the bacon and chop into pieces. Add to vegetables in bowl.

What's next?


Mix in the mayo and colby jack cheese.

Season with salt and pepper and toss cauliflower salad in the bowl to combine.

I won’t stop you, honestly. But canned peas can get real mushy really quick, so I don’t recommend them.

Can I use canned peas for this?

Yes and no. Most of the ingredients are keto, including the peas. Of course, that depends entirely on how you feel about peas on keto. If you want to keep the carbs lower, sub green beans like my friend did.

Is this a keto cauliflower salad?
