Let $K$ be a simplicial complex such that the Taylor resolution for its Stanley–Reisner ring is minimal. We prove that the following conditions are equivalent: (1) $K$ is Golod; (2) any two minimal non-faces of $K$ are not disjoint; (3) the moment-angle complex for $K$ is homotopy equivalent to a wedge of spheres; (4) the decomposition of the suspension of the polyhedral product $\mathcal{Z}_K (C \underline{X}, \underline{X})$ due to Bahri, Bendersky, Cohen and Gitler desuspends.
