    This was a great recipe! My husband and I eat “light” one night a week and this was perfect. I did add a few things though – freshly grated cheddar cheese, slivered (because I couldn’t find my sliced) almonds, some ditalani noodles, and some chow mein noodles. It was great except next time I wouldn’t mix the chow mein noodles in ahead of time (I like them for the crunch factor). We also tried several dressings (light ranch, zesty Italian and poppyseed) besides the mayo. We put each on a corner of our plate, dipped our forks in and then went for the salad. That way we cut down on the amount of fat from the dressings. They were all great and husband called this a keeper!! I will be making this very often. Loved it!!! Thanks so much!

    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 Link Reply

      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.

    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 Link Reply

      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 Link

        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 Link

        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.

    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!!!

      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 Link

        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!

    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!

    What are the calories in this wonderful salad please!

    • susan 06/14/2018, 4:22 pm Link Reply

      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.

    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!

      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.

    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.

    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 Link Reply

      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 Link Reply

      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!

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

    • admin 08/11/2017, 12:48 pm Link Reply

      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 Link Reply

    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!

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