Ingredients for the Roasted Broccoli, Cauliflower and Bacon Salad

How to Make the Roasted Broccoli, Cauliflower and Bacon Salad
It cannot get simpler than this for a brunch recipe that can feed 4 or 20 people in minutes.
So, another Pro-tip, whenever cooking with bacon, always saute the bacon first and then use the same pan to cook the rest of the ingredients.
This adds such a nice smokey flavor to the veggies.
Then finally add the Dijon Mustard, add the bacon and saute everything for 2 minutes.
Then you finally mix the chopped radish and almonds and that it, the salad is ready.
Such a simple recipe, but absolutely flavorful and elegant for all your brunches/lunches or even picnic needs.
