Andrea’s Confetti Salad

Andrea's Confetti Salad

Our cousins came to visit this past weekend. Well really Andrea is the  accidental cowboy’s second cousin. But let’s not split hairs. I now consider Andrea and her husband both my cousins. Andrea is an extraordinary baker and cook. It was such a delight to cook with her while they were here. We, well, mainly she made this amazing salad. Why so amazing? It is so good it could possibly replace Pringles. A little salty, tangy and crunchy. Just like Pringles but healthy! Just vegetables and this really yummy dressing. I call it Andrea’s Confetti Salad because it is full of all these bits of color.

Confetti Salad

Look at all those colors

Just look at how beautiful this is. We adapted this from a pasta salad but replaced the pasta with riced cauliflower. So much better. Can you say CRUNCH! It just keeps getting better in the fridge. Need a snack? Just dish up a bowl full.

This recipe makes a HUGE salad. Enough for a crowd. Serve it at room temperature or cold. Because of the vinegar, it will keep wonderfully in the fridge for days.

    Jeanne this looks delicious! Do you think 2 recipes would serve 24 people? Take a guess. Will try it soon.

      This recipe as is makes about 14 cups of salad. We had to rummage around the kitchen to find a bowl big enough.

      So yes 2 recipes should be more than enough for 24 people.
