This low-carb Broccoli and Cauliflower Salad with Feta and Tarragon Vinaigrette is a great way to use fresh tarragon if you’re lucky enough to have some, or make the dressing without tarragon if you’re not a fan! Use Salad Recipes for more salads like this one.
I still remember when I first tried fresh tarragon, and this Broccoli and Cauliflower Salad with Feta and Tarragon Vinaigrette has that distinctive tarragon flavor in the dressing that I liked so much. But through the years I’ve realized that not everyone likes the slightly anise flavor of this herb. So let me start by making it clear that you can skip the tarragon completely (or use another type of herb) in this tasty broccoli and cauliflower salad, and it will still taste great. If you’re looking for a season-spanning salad to take you from summer into fall, this salad will be perfect for that.
This is another of those recipes that had been lurking in the archives without a single decent photo, and when we made it to update the pictures Kara and I couldn’t help adding some Feta cheese to the salad. And OH MY, what a great idea that was. Of course the Feta is also completely optional, but if you like Feta I’m encouraging you to use some.
Who else loves broccoli and cauliflower in salads? I shared my favorite ideas for cauliflower salads in The BEST Low-Carb Cauliflower Salads, and I’ve made a lot of tasty salads with broccoli too. And you know that both of these are cruciferous vegetables that are loaded with nutrients, right? I hope you’ll consider this healthy dish as a new idea for a think-outside-the-box salad for fall!
