I had sliced cucumbers and radishes handful of cauliflower and a broccoli carrot slaw on hand. Added some cilantro from my garden and this awful "snack mix" with nuts and dried fruits sprinkled with turmeric. A little kale.. I can only handle a little at a time. I completely forgot to add garlic but it came out so good!!! The snack mix really brought it together. Any dried fruit and nuts will do! This is like the healthy version of fried rice which I also make on occasion when I have too many random ingredients leftover. Easy to remember and flexible with ingredients. Skip the cheese on this one! Read More

My family were not fans of this salad. We all thought it was too dry (not enough dressing for the quantity of ingredients). Additionally the cilantro was a little overpowering and did not compliment the other ingredients. I even used a little less (half cup instead of 2/3 cup) than called for. We'll stick to our usual broccoli salad. Read More

This salad was bland for our taste so I added additional red wine vinegar and about 3 tablespoons of sugar. I know it wasn't as healthy with the sugar but we loved it. I'm sure I will make it again. Putting the vegetables through the food processor made for an interesting texture. Read More

This is a salad which you can improvise with if you do not have all the ingredients on hand. I used cabbage in place of cauliflower and dried cranberries and pecans in place of raisins and pumpkin seeds.I brought it to the office buffet and there was nothing left. Quick simple and delicious.

I am not a vegetable fan but thought the combination of this with the herbs would be a hit with my family and my hunch was correct!! This was absolutely out of this world- I added two extra cloves of garlic because we are garlic nuts. The dressing was perfect and the vegetables soak up the flavor. Give this a try!! Read More

I really liked the tastes of this dish. It was a little vinegary for me so I added 3 TBS of sugar and that was just enough. I also substituted chopped walnuts for pumpkin seeds and garlic flavored olive oil for olive oil. "That's What's For Dinner Tonight" Read More

This was a great recipe; however I found it a messy job to make with all the pulsing and scraping into the bowl. The only ingredient I had to substitute was I used cilantro in the tube as I did not have any fresh and I increased the garlic as we love garlic. Yes I would make again and I would always make the day before company so that the mess is tidied away ahead of time. Read More

I give this recipe a solid "4" probably on the basis of personal taste. It is beautiful and there is no dairy or mayonnaise! I wanted a bit more punch so I put in about 3/4 cup of raisins and doubled the pumpkin seeds. Tasty! They must grow cauliflower big in Texas and my smallish head yielded about 5 cups so watch the proportions when you make it. The amount of dressing seemed just about right. I did combine the garlic herbs salt and pepper with the oil and vinegar just so I could be assured of a uniform mix. Thanks for the idea! Read More

I was so excited about this salad because it's all foods I love. It was so disappointing. Not very much flavor. I won't make it again. Read More
