This cauliflower salad recipe is easy to make and a nice change from your traditional potato, plus we’ve added two different types of dressings to please all taste buds.  

Cauliflower Salad with Mayo & Horseradish Dressing

This salad is made with mayo and horseradish dressing.


It’s easy to fall in love with meals we know are good for us, especially ones like this that are easy to make.  Like this healthy salad that is low in calories and fat yet offers a ton of nutrition. 

Cauliflower is often a forgotten vegetable at meal times and perhaps that’s because they lack a bright inviting color, but don’t let these little white cruciferous florets fool you, they pack a healthy punch when it comes to any meal you include them in. 

We already know this vegetable is a liver loving food that helps detoxify the body, but it is also a good source of vitamin C, vitamin K, vitamin B6, vitamin B5 and folate. 

They also contains potassium, manganese, protein, thiamin, riboflavin, niacin, manganese, phosphorous and is a good source of dietary fiber.  Wow, that's a lot of good stuff.
