Very delicious cauliflower salad. This recipe came from my mother-in-law and I like to take it to gatherings to get all the compliments! Be ready to give out the recipe.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix cauliflower, green onions, radishes, and sesame seeds.
  2. In a separate bowl, combine sour cream, mayo, and ranch dressing.
  3. Pour over cauliflower and mix until thoroughly combined.
  4. Note: This makes a lot of dressing.
  5. If you do not like your salads to be runny, buy two small heads of cauliflower or one really large one.
  6. Or cut back on the sour cream, mayo, and ranch dressing.

This really is delicious. I took note of the author's remark that it makes a lot of dressing so I halved the dressing amount to use with my medium head of cauliflower. It was still too much and though tasty, it was kind of 'one note' of ranch dressing. I had the thought that I could have just served the ingredients with a bowl of dressing and not gone to the trouble of mixing them. Having said that, I can see that this would be a really good dish for a potluck so that people could just scoop the salad onto their plates without bothering with the veggies and dip. Also, I love sesame seeds but they got lost in the dressing and I couldn't really taste them. I'd make this again and use about 1/4 the amount of dressing and sprinkle the sesame seeds on top. Thanks Shena!

I cut this recipe in half. I only had a smallish head of cauliflower. It was pretty tasty but we thought the sour cream overpowered the dressing a little bit. I will cut it back a bit next time
