Easy Cauliflower Salad (gluten-free and dairy-free option) // Follow Me on Pinterest

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 petty 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?

  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! :)
