  • SherryYJ 07/29/2018, 6:03 pm

    Hello, TY 4 this delightful recipe!!
    My hubby loved it!!! Sub’d mint for dill, used crumbled cauliflower, Mrs. Dash, light Caesar’s dressing, shredded cheddar, Parma cheese, bacon bits, pinch of slendar,,,as you can tell “a lil’ this & that” 2taste😁😁
    Fam njoyed!!!!

    • admin 07/30/2018, 10:52 am

      Thanks so much for your feedback, SherryYJ. Your version sounds fantastic, yummm.

  • Julie 07/17/2018, 11:56 am

    I had some cauliflower to use up and friends coming for dinner, so decided to try this. I used 3 ears fresh corn, cooked and cut off the cob. Rather than mayo and dill, I made a lemon basil vinaigrette dressing. Turned out great!

    • admin 07/17/2018, 3:22 pm

      Oh I love the fresh corn. You lemon basil vinaigrette dressing sounds heavenly, did you make it or purchase the dressing? I want! Thanks for trying our salad, Julie.

  • Natalie 07/09/2018, 5:18 pm

    Hello I want to bring this to camp.. Can I cut up all the ingredients and put them in the same bowl and then mix it with the Mayo there? Or should I keep all ingredients separate and then mix when we eat?

    • admin 07/10/2018, 11:46 pm

      Hi, Natalie. You definitely can just put everything together and just mix before serving. This is a wonderful recipe for camp. Enjoy your time and make lots of wonderful memories. 🙂

      • Pamela 07/23/2018, 11:23 pm

        Would the cucumbers make the cauliflower soggy? I’m makong this for camping too. Never even had it before but looks great.

      • admin 07/24/2018, 10:48 am

        Pamela. Nope, you’ll be fine. 🙂 If you are really concerned, you can put your cucumbers in a separate container and then just combine at camp (or, just add a few pieces of paper towel under the cucumbers so it will soak in any liquid, discard before mixing).
        Enjoy your time at camp and enjoy this salad. You’ll love it.

  • Marina 06/24/2018, 1:43 am

    This salad is now officially one of my all-time favorites! Yum, I make this for every party and family gathering, and for simple family dinners during the week. It is absolutely delicious with my broiled salmon recipe, add some Jasmine rice and you have a perfect nutritious meal! Thanks so much for sharing this one!!!

    • admin 06/24/2018, 10:10 am

      I loved your comment. Thanks for sharing, Marina. Now I’m intrigued about your broiled salmon recipe, do share. 🙂 And thanks so much for the feedback, it means a ton to me.

      • Marina 01/15/2019, 6:54 pm

        I’m sorry I just saw your reply, I didn’t receive any sort of notification. Recipe is really simple. I cut up an entire salmon fillet into approximately 1.5″ slices and then sprinkle each one with lemon pepper seasoning, garlic powder, and a hint of salt. I rub the seasonings into each piece, making sure to get the sides. Then, I prepare the marinade… mix 2/3 cup each of soy sauce, water, and brown sugar, as well as 1/2 cup of oil. I pour the marinade into a glass baking dish and put in all the fish pieces skin side up into the marinade, cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnights. The next day, I place each piece of salmon separately into a little foil pouch and onto a baking pan. I discard the rest of the marinade. Bake at 425°F for approximately 15 minutes, then remove from the oven and take each piece out of the foil and onto a baking sheet, and put them all under the broiler for a few more minutes to brown. This is seriously the best recipe in the world for salmon, I haven’t met a single person who didn’t like it! Please do try it, I am sure even your kids will love it!!!

        Also, congratulations on your little bundle of joy! I am really happy for your guys, may God bless your family!

      • Marina 01/22/2019, 12:06 am

        And please let me know if you get a chance to try my salmon recipe, I’d love to hear your feedback!

      • Valentina's Corner 01/22/2019, 8:01 am

        It’s on my to-do list! I can’t wait to try it, Marina. Thank you so much for sharing. 🙂

  • Sherry 06/21/2018, 9:15 am

    We made this last summer and we all loved it! I followed the recipe to a T was happy how quick, easy, and wonderful it was. With the fresh dill, I think I’ll compliment it with some lemon-garlic marinated salmon, grilled. Easy peasy and refreshing for a hot summer day. Thank you!

    • admin 06/22/2018, 6:20 pm

      That’s wonderful, Sherry. Thanks so much for sharing. Makes me so happy to hear the wonderful comment and an extra thanks for taking time to leave us feedback. You’re so kind. 🙂 🙂

  • Delise 05/16/2018, 3:21 pm

    What are the calories in this wonderful salad please!

    • susan 06/14/2018, 4:22 pm

      I put the ingredients into Diet Power (free program No affiliation on my part). I guestimated on the amount of cucumber–1.5 C; and corn–1.3 C. I went with 1/3 C of mayo. The result was 215 calories, 20.6 Carbs and 3.31 fiber. Fat was 15.2 grams. hope this helps

      My husband does not like dill. I think I’ll try a little cilantro.

  • Kim 04/24/2018, 1:19 pm

    We love this salad! A friend brought it to a potluck, and I asked (a little too desperately) if she would share the recipe! I was excited about it because my husband is a new kidney patient, and I was happy to find something new he can have! We just leave out the salt, and it’s a great fit for his Renal Diet! Thanks so much!

    • admin 04/24/2018, 4:38 pm

      What an awesome comment. Thanks so much! And thank you for visiting our online home – stop back and visit. 🙂

    • Susan 06/14/2018, 4:24 pm

      Kim, I was on dialysis for 7 years. The renal diet can be hard. I sure wish the internet was as abundant with recipe sites when I first started my dialysis journey. Best wishes to your hubby.

  • Evelina 04/05/2018, 7:49 pm

    Hi Valentina!
    I tried this salad when I ended up with a cauliflower I had to use, and it was delicious! I’m new to your blog, and I love it. Thanks for sharing your recipes 🙂

    • admin 04/05/2018, 9:51 pm

      Hi, Evelina. Huge WELCOME to our blog. I hope you stick around, try some of our other recipes and enjoy them. 🙂 Looking forward to seeing you around. <3

  • Anita 04/01/2018, 11:45 pm

    Thank you for this great recipe. I made it today to bring to a family Easter dinner. The only addition I made was to add some grated cheddar cheese. It was a real hit! I will be making this recipe again. And now I am going to check out your website for more recipes!!!

    • Anita 04/01/2018, 11:48 pm

      Just adding 5 stars to give a rating 🙂

      • admin 04/02/2018, 10:54 am

        I appreciate that so much, Anita! Thank you kindly.

  • Mrs G 03/25/2018, 7:38 am

    I used a mix of broccoli and cauliflower, lightly steamed. Then I added diced ham and gluten-free pasta (I used small macaroni) and it became a complete meal. Just don’t use spaghetti or similar, pasta needs to be small.

    • admin 03/25/2018, 2:56 pm

      That sounds wonderful, Mrs. G. That sounds like a tasty meal. Thanks for sharing.

  • Pat 03/04/2018, 5:16 pm

    I whipped this up this afternoon exactly as written. IT’S A KEEPER! Love how colorful and crunchy it is. Will add to my summer menues. Thanks!

    • admin 03/05/2018, 12:15 am

      Thank you, Pat. I agree, the salad is so easy to throw together and it’s such a wonderful salad.
      Thank you for trying our recipe and visiting our online home. 🙂

  • Barb 02/28/2018, 12:07 pm

    Where’s the CRAB???? “This Cauliflower Corn and Cucumber Salad recipe is filled with crab, corn, cauliflower, cucumbers, peppers with a mayo dressing”

    • admin 02/28/2018, 12:16 pm

      Was just a typo, Barb. 🙂 Thank you for catching that, it’s fixed.

  • Mike 02/24/2018, 2:49 pm

    Can’t wait to start making it but can I substitute the mayo with low fat greek yogurt ?

    • admin 02/25/2018, 12:27 am

      Hello, Mike.
      I have not yet tried subbing for greek yogurt. However, I’ve had many positive reviews from those who have tried the recipe with yogurt.:) Sorry, that wasn’t helpful.

    • Patti Lewis 06/25/2018, 8:20 pm

      you can even use a vegan sour cream made of cashews with this, yogurt/nut yogurt…i think a little squeeze of citrus would brighten and even different herbs if you wanted to change it up sometime. this recipe made my mouth water 😀 Mmmm!

  • Carolyn 02/14/2018, 4:57 pm

    This looks wonderful!

    • admin 02/15/2018, 12:34 am

      Thanks so much, Carolyn. Hope you love it. <3

  • Sarita 09/08/2017, 4:38 am

    Is the cauliflower raw?

    • admin 09/08/2017, 5:54 pm

      Yes, Sarita. The cauliflower is raw in this recipe. 🙂 Enjoy..

  • Lindsy 08/11/2017, 12:43 pm

    When you say mayo do you mean real mayo or miracle whip?

    • admin 08/11/2017, 12:48 pm

      Hi Lindsy,
      Real mayo is what I used. However, if you prefer the taste of miracle whip, that can be used as well. Enjoy 🙂

  • Yvonne Swenson 07/04/2017, 3:21 pm

    Absolutely yummy! Just a few tweaks for my personal taste. I added a small, diced jicama. For the dressing, I added the zest and juice of a small lemon, about a T of prepared basil pesto, and about a T of prepared chunky garlic from a tube. A dash of Sriracha pepper, mixed the dressing and added to the veggies. This is most definitely a keeper recipe. All the better, because I used fresh veggies from a local farmer!! LOVE!

    • admin 07/06/2017, 12:17 am

      Oh my, Yvonne. Sounds superb!!!. Agree, fresh veggies are the best. You’ve got me craving your version.??

  • Laurie Crouse 06/16/2017, 9:15 am

    192 calories per serving. I added cayenne pepper too. Tasted great!

    • admin 06/16/2017, 12:49 pm

      Thank you Laurie. Mmm, love cayenne…

  • Gretchen 06/13/2017, 9:27 pm

    Absolutely delicious! I used fresh corn and added a little lemon juice to the mayo. This tastes like summer! Thank you so much for sharing the recipe!!!

    • admin 06/13/2017, 10:55 pm

      I love the fresh corn, Gretchen. Yumm!! So glad you enjoyed the salad, thanks for the feedback! ☺

  • Danielle 04/15/2017, 7:51 pm

    For the salad I added zucchini as well as a red onion for a little bite and I roasted my corn for added sweetness. I then chopped up an array of fresh herbs consisting of full, chevril and French Savory and add d them to the raw vegetables to mingle the flavors. Then for a dressing in my vitamix I added a 1/2 cup of Almond milk a cup of nonfat Greek yogurt as well as a fresh avacado I then mixed everything together refrigerated overnight so all the flavors could mingle. The next day I served the salad with a nice white savigion blanc with notes of citrus such as lime grapefruit and lemon. It complimented the salad beautifully. The salad ingredients themselves were a fabulous base combination with the added touches it became a very nice accomplishment for salmon crab cakes as well as a black bean burger.

    • admin 04/17/2017, 11:07 am

      Your version sounds absolutely fantastic. Thank you for sharing. I’ll have to give it a try:)…

    • Li 05/01/2017, 4:34 pm

      This isn’t even close to the same recipe.
      Why would you completely redo it and then rate something that is so different?
      Just wondering.

      • Wendy 07/14/2017, 6:41 am


  • Paula 03/15/2017, 1:09 am

    Yummers! Made half with Ranch dressing (ran out of mayo) and half with plain yogurt (my granddaughters preference) and both were delish!!

    • admin 03/23/2017, 1:45 am

      Oh Paula, your version sounds fantastic.. What a treat. Thank you so much for the feedback.

  • Rick R. 01/12/2017, 4:18 pm

    Added tomato and feta and olives . EXCELLENT!!!! Green onion puts it over the top.

    • admin 01/13/2017, 12:02 am

      Oh wow, Rick, I love your added ingredients. I will definitely be giving those a try. I can just taste the different the olives and feta gave, yum. Thanks for the idea and feedback.

  • Tzivia 08/31/2016, 7:17 pm

    Hi, this recipe sounds delicious and I will definitely be making it very soon, I have one question though, does the cauliflower need to be cooked at all or does it have to be raw?

    Thank you!!!

    • admin 07/19/2016, 4:49 pm

      Hello Mariam☺… No need to cook the cauliflower, just use it raw?? .

  • Lysandra 07/14/2016, 2:45 pm

    • admin 07/15/2016, 5:45 am

      Yes, definitely. Just keep it refrigerated. Mix before serving.?

    Did you add fresh dill to the finished product? Trying to figure out what that is in the photos. Thx.

    • admin 07/01/2016, 4:04 pm

      Yes, Tabitha, great eye! You can add some fresh dill to taste if desired. We love dill so we do:)

      Ooh great idea for tomatoes??..

  • marilyn 05/17/2016, 12:55 am

    I made this tonight and loved it so much! For the dressing, I used mostly Greek yogurt with only a Tbs of mayo for the flavor. I also added a teaspoon of sriracha for a little kick. Looking forward to leftovers for lunch tomorrow. 🙂

    • admin 05/17/2016, 10:23 am

      Thank you Marilyn. You’re a genius!! I absolutely love Sriracha and cannot wait to try your version!!! Thanks for sharing??..

  • Christine 05/14/2016, 4:22 pm

    I honestly have never eaten raw cauliflower. Could it be blanched first or should I be brave and give it a go ?? Cheers

    • admin 05/14/2016, 5:36 pm

      Hi Christine, Ha.. I was just like you before, cauliflower and broccoli raw were an absolute no ;). Now I go out of my way to stick raw cauliflower wherever I can (search my salads tab, there is proof there, hehe:)..) Oh do give it a try, I think you’d be rather surprised! Also, try this SALAD it’s my absolute favorite salad, I can enjoy it once a week. 🙂
      You can do this! 🙂

  • Dariya 05/13/2016, 1:03 pm

    Absolutely fantastic!! I used light mayo and added fresh sweet peas and green onion. The perfect salad for parties! Thank you.

    • admin 05/13/2016, 1:05 pm

      Oh I love your additions, I’m thinking I will try that too. Yes, light mayo will work as well.. Thanks Dariya☺..

  • Kathy 05/09/2016, 9:54 pm

    It looks like there is dill in the salad picture, but it’s not listed in the recipe. Is there fresh dill added?

    • admin 05/10/2016, 1:52 pm

      Ooops forgot that in the ingredients. Though optional, dill makes a great addition, I just add to taste. Thank you, enjoy.. 🙂

  • sara Pepin 05/02/2016, 11:44 am

    think greek yogurt would make a good mayo alternative?

    • admin 05/02/2016, 12:46 pm

      Hi Sara. Honestly, I’ve never tried it but I don’t see why not. It would be a lot healthier that’s for sure. 🙂 Sorry that wasn’t very helpful..

  • Katrina 05/01/2016, 4:10 am

    What’s a good alternative to mayo with this recipe? Ranch?

    • admin 05/01/2016, 8:35 pm

      Hi Katrina.. You can do sour cream and ranch or just ranch☺..

  • Natasha of 04/22/2016, 12:37 am

    This looks so fresh and yummy! Perfect summer salad!

    • admin 04/22/2016, 11:09 am
