This recipe is great! The dish is fantastic! I used the Kraft Shredded Parmesan Romano and Asiago cheese blend instead of the normal parmesan and it was delicious! I also used light mayo. Read More

I had half a head of cauliflower to use and found this recipe. I altered it because I didn't want to use mayo and had some other ingredients on hand. I used 1/3cu vinegar less than 1/4 cu olive oil an unmeasured amount of water and plain yogurt to make a thick creamy dressing with the italian mix. I tossed this with raw cauliflower because this head tasted great shredded carots and some frozen peas. Refreshing way to keep extra veggies from rotting in the fridge! Read More

I am not a big cauliflower fan but this recipe may convert me into a flowerhead. I altered nothing on the recipe except I added a bit more cheese (Romano blend) and sprinkles of Italian seasoning. This salad is ridiculously simple and very tasty. Read More

We liked this salad but it isn't visually appealing. I garnished it with green onions but I think adding another green vegetable or red peppers would be good. Read More

Really enjoyed this! I used homemade italian dressing mix and was only able to chill it for an hour but it was so good! Thanks for sharing! Read More

I agree that this had a bold flavor. I didn't set it in the fridge for 2 hours before trying it and I think it would have tasted better if I had. But it was good. Read More

Very tasty. I used light mayo and probably not quite as much parm. I also added a little vinegar and water to thin out the dressing a bit. Oh, and I didn't blanch my cauliflower because I wanted a raw salad. Also added some broccoli florets for a kick of color. Read More
