In a large bowl, combine the cauliflower, peas and onion. To prepare dressing, stir ingredients together and pour over vegetables, stirring lightly to coat.

Here's a twist on the traditional coleslaw that's terrific! In large bowl combine cauliflower, carrot and onion.


In second smaller bowl, combine yogurt, salad dressing, sugar, lemon juice, celery seed and salt; mix well.

I am looking for a recipe for a salad that has cauliflower, cream cheese, black olives and I don't know what else but it is delicious. If anyone can share this recipe I would be so grateful.

I don't know if this is the one you are referring to, but I make a cauliflower-broccoli salad that is a hit everywhere I take it. Break cauliflower and broccoli into small pieces. Chop 1/4 onion very finely. Mix 1 cup Ranch dressing and 1/2 cup sour cream together until smooth. Pour dressing over cauliflower and broccoli and stir to coat (if you don't use it all, you can store it in the refrigerator and use it on baked potatoes).


Mix in onion, sliced olives, about 1/4 cup bacon bits and 3 Tbsp. sunflower seeds. I don't measure the veggies and olives - just eyeball it to suit the occasion. Best if refrigerated at least 3 hours before serving. Hope this helps.
