Mustardy Cauliflower Salad

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Parsley

This is not quite as "heavy" as other cauliflower salads. It's creamy, but there's no mayo. Cook time is parboiling the cauliflower.

I had to thow this one out. I didn't like the combination of celery and cauliflower and the dressing was too strong. It could have been my fault because I used all Dijon instead of adding a tablespoon of grainy mustard (didn't have any).

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Steam/boil the cauliflower flowerets for just 3-5 minutes (you just want them slightly parboiled -- like you would do to prepare them for freezing). Drain. Rinse w/ cold water; drain and cool.
  2. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, whisk together the sour cream, both mustards, lemon juice, sugar, salt and pepper; set aside.
  3. In a large mixing bowl, toss together the cooled flowerets, onion and celery.
  4. Pour the dressing over veggie mixture and gently toss to evenly coat w/ dressing.
