Crunchy and sweet Cauliflower Salad

joanne ricci


I am always looking for low calorie dishes that are quick and easy. They also have to pass the husband test. This one did. Great to make ahead in a big bowl to have it all week. Add any other of your favorite ingredients, like cucumbers, hard boiled eggs, and nuts. This is one that you can be creative with. It is all about the sweet with the crunchy!

How to Make Crunchy and sweet Cauliflower Salad


  1. cut up head of cauliflower and remove stem. (I steam mine to soften a little)Cut up into bite size pieces and put in large bowl.
  2. add celery and red onion.
    Add any other veggies you would like at this point. Be creative!
    (Sometimes I add red, yellow peppers, cucumbers or even peas. What ever you have on hand.
  3. Make the dressing in seperate bowl. Mix the Mayo, splenda, apple cider vinegar and pepper to taste. Whisk until mixed. Add more apple cider vinegar to thin the dressing if you would like.
  4. Mix the salad with the dressing and refrigerate for about two hours before serving. Top with sunflower seeds or nuts for that extra added Crunch!
