    Very easy and very good! I chose to steam my cauliflower and microwaved the sauce. I enjoyed it with dinner. Thanks Rita! Made for ZWT4-Fancy Feinschmeckers!

    I really enjoyed my cauli & broccoli this way, I used dijonnaise & sour cream and as suggested by some other reviewers doubled the sauce, really simple to do and full of flavour, I'm sure to make this often. made for ZWT 4.

    I agree with Leggy Peggy in doubling the delicious sauce! I didn't make mine "light" however; my current health consciousness mode says to use full fat mayonaise and sour cream -- it's all about the least amount of tampering with our food at the plant! Thanks, Sage! Made for ZWT4.

    Sensational cauliflower. If you feel the need to change something -- double the sauce. Used Recipe #207860. This is an excellent dish that I will make often in the future. Yummo!

    I had a normal sized organic head of cauliflower; I made the sauce as directed and it was very easy to put together, although I felt that it made way too much and I didn't know what else I could use it for, so ended up wasting about a 1/3 of it. I enjoy the taste of dijon, but found it to be overwhelming. DH also didn't care for the mustard taste and DS was also not a fan either. I don't think I'd do this one again, sorry. Made for ZWT4.

    I agree, this is a nice change from the usual cheddary-cheesy sauces for cauliflower. The Dijon adds great flavor and the nuts are a nice bonus (I used almonds in place of pine nuts). I sprinkled some paprika on top for a pretty look. Another great thing is that this can be made in well under 10 minutes. Thanx for posting!
