The dressing softens the tomatoes but the cauliflower stays crunchy. Good idea to try to get the tomatoes and the cauliflower florets about the same size. I didn't chop the cauliflower just trimmed the floret stems a little and broke them apart which I think makes for a nice presentation. Just a really nice salad/side dish with a tasty dressing.

Made the basic salad with a few changes: I blanched the cauliflower for 2 minutes in lightly salted water and then into an ice bath. Added 1/2 of a red bell pepper diced for color and sweetness Added about 1/4 cup of feta crumbles as this was doubling as my side dish and I needed to add tasty calories Used a mix of heritage small tomatoes that were in a pint box together at Sprouts....used about 2/3rd of the pint Used Penzey's Italian Dressing mix made with red wine vinegar (Pompeii) and extra virgin olive oil (Bertoilli) Husband declared it delicious! Next time I will cut the cauliflower into smaller pieces...I didn't think of that tonight Served with a small steak for a great quick low carb supper Read More

I made this without garlic and parsley but it was very very good. Will add garlic and parsley to the leftovers along with our homemade pickled green beans. Read More

I really enjoyed this recipe. I added some black olives for an additional flavor. Next time I might blanch the cauliflower for a few minutes to soften the veggie. Great summer picnic dish. Read More

This is a tasty and colorful way to replace a dinner salad. I found it could marinate for up to 48 hours in the fridge. Great winter salad side. Read More

This salad is very good. Something different to do with cauliflower. Next time I make it I will just use Italian dressing on it. i made the dressing called for and it was very bland. I add some Italian dressing and it was delicious. Will mke again for sure. Read More
