Easy and Quick Cauliflower Apple Salad

Total Time

I tried this salad at a luncheon and was amazed when the woman who made it told me that there were only 4 ingredients. The taste and texture of the cauliflower and apple really complement each other, and you can't beat the dressing for simplicity.


  1. Break or cut cauliflower into small pieces. Chop unpeeled apple in pieces about the same size as the cauliflower.
  2. Mix all ingredients together.
  3. Chill if desired, then serve.

This recipe is quick and easy -- and the apples and cauliflower make a compliment each other nicely. Just for added texture, I chopped up some toasted pecans that I had on hand and threw them in. However, the dressing itself was very bland. (I did use low-fat mayo to keep in tune w/ my diet). I should have tried adding in a dash of rice vinegar and sea salt to keep it sweet but spice it up some. I love the concept of the salad though ... sho knew that apples and cauliflower made such a pleasant combo?

This is a nice, quick and easy salad to make. I made it exactly as written, but used Breaburn apples (I needed the full 1/3 cup of mayo), but thought it still needed a little something. I then added about 1/4 or so of chopped onion, some salt and pepper, and that did the trick! Still quick and easy! Thanx for posting this. I'll make it again.
