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.
- 1⁄2 large cauliflower
- 2 Red Delicious apples
- 1⁄4-1⁄3 cup Hellmann's mayonnaise
- 1 teaspoon granulated sugar
- Break or cut cauliflower into small pieces. Chop unpeeled apple in pieces about the same size as the cauliflower.
- Mix all ingredients together.
- 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.
