Sounds weird; tastes great! If you prefer, make your own French Onion dip rather than using prepared.

What a different way to fix a cauliflower salad. Really enjoyed it, Susie. Lots of possible additions for this one. Chopped bacon and tomato? Made for Photo Swap in Cooking Photos.

Great stuff! So different from most cauliflower salads and so simple! I did blanch the cauliflower for 30 seconds in boiling water then plunged it into an ice bath. We really enjoyed this. I used a lowfat onion dip, next time will make my own using low fat sour cream. Thank you Susie!
