I love cauliflower; the texture makes it so versatile making it perfect for soups, salads, sides, etc. It makes a fantastic creamy soup with shrimp by the way.

    I like the receipt so much, but is it a way to replace ranch and mayo with oil? Reply

      Hi Yelena, it would completely change the flavor of the salad, but I think you could experiment with different dressings. Reply

    I made this salad & told everyone to write their name on the piece of napkin. When they asked me why, I told them because after they try this salad, they will forget their name! ๐Ÿ™‚ Reply

    Wow! What a great salad! I’m one of those people who didn’t know that you could eat cauliflower raw. I tried it raw but didn’t like it as much. So I steamed it a little to make it softer. Steamed cauliflower only enhanced the creaminess of the salad! Plus cauliflower is sweeter when steamed. I never ate cauliflower before, and this a great way to introduce it to my diet. This recipe is definitely a keeper for me. Thank you, Natasha, for your blog. I’m a regular now ๐Ÿ™‚ Reply

    Yum! I love Cauliflower Salad too, with tomatoes. I love the texture, since it’s crunchy and the taste is so refreshing. It’s a perfect option for a quick vegetable side dish. I usually make it with seafood, although it goes well with just about any dinner. Reply
