This easy cauliflower salad is one of my favorite salads to bring to potlucks and get-togethers. You can make it the day before and it holds up nicely. As a matter of fact, I think it tastes better the next day.

Cauliflower is one of those vegetables that doesn’t seem to get a whole lot of thought, but it’s a pretty versatile vegetable and I love it. This recipe came about one evening when I had a head of cauliflower that needed using, but I wanted something a little different, so I decided to make a salad.

Did you know that cauliflower is a great source of fiber, vitamin C, vitamin B6, vitamin K, folate, manganese, potassium and pantothenic acid? In addition, it is also a good source of protein, phosphorus, thiamin, magnesium, riboflavin and niacin. Pretty awesome veggie, eh?

Amazon, of course, has everything you need for this recipe. Their prices are often very good, though I love to shop around and sometimes find that Vitacost and Thrive Market have better deals. If you like saving money, it’s good to shop around! 🙂

My favorite olive oil comes from Kasandrinos. It is excellent quality, produced in small batches (with lots of love), is 100% pure (not contaminated with cheaper oils), and tastes amazing. Visit their site here.

  1. Raisins and cauliflower, huh? Who would have thought!

    • It’s delicious. I’m usually not a fan of raisins, but I really like them in this salad. You could also substitute currants for the raisins. As a matter of fact, you could probably substitute any dried fruit for the raisins and it would be yummy … hmmm …. I’ll have to try that! Thanks for reading! 🙂
