How to Make Cauliflower Salad


  1. Trim off cauliflower leaves, stem and any discoloration.
    Cook cauliflower in about 2 inches of boiling water water in a covered saucepan until just tender. Drain on paper towels and let cool.
    (tip) adding a tablespoon of white vinegar to water keeps cauliflower odors away.
  2. Mix together
    3/4 cup mayonaise,
    4 tablespoons milk
    1 teaspoon salt or salt substitute
    2 tablespoons sugar or sugar substitute
    2 tablespoons white vinegar

    Mix well, refrigerate for 5 minutes.

    Into a medium bowl break cooled cauliflower into 1-2 inch pieces.
    Add mayonaise sauce and lightly mix. Sprinkle top wih a little black pepper.
    (tip) Often, I add several green peas or a bit of grated carrot.

    Chill for several hours and serve.
