    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!!!

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

    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.

      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.

    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 Link Reply

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

  • marilyn 05/17/2016, 12:55 am Link Reply

    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 Link Reply

      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 Link Reply

    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 Link Reply

      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 Link Reply

    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 Link Reply

      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 Link Reply

    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 Link Reply

      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 Link Reply

    think greek yogurt would make a good mayo alternative?

    • admin 05/02/2016, 12:46 pm Link Reply

      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 Link Reply

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

    • admin 05/01/2016, 8:35 pm Link Reply

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

  • This looks so fresh and yummy! Perfect summer salad!
