Creamy Cauliflower Salad

This creamy cauliflower salad is a great appetizer that can be served as a dip or a spread, even though I like to call it a salad. 🙂 

Hey, guys! Sorry for the long break. I was super busy with school and work, projects after projects, I just didn’t have time to cook anymore. I even skipped breakfasts, which we all know it’s a bad thing. I’m hoping things will get back to normal now.

About this creamy cauliflower salad… I’m not a big fan of cauliflower as I find it a bit tasteless and prefer broccoli instead, but this creamy cauliflower salad recipe is just perfect! I call it salad but it may as well be a dip or a spread. It’s a great appetizer, vegan and healthy. Also, the pickles go very well with cauliflower making this salad very refreshing.

I’m beginning to like cauliflower a lot! Since mom made this awesome Cauliflower and Cheese Casserole recipe I decided to eat it more often. I am actually planning to make a creamy cauliflower soup this week.

This creamy cauliflower salad is a great appetizer, vegan and healthy! I call it salad, but it may as well be a dip or a spread. Serve it with crackers!

Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 25 minutes
Total Time 30 minutes


  • 1 medium cauliflower
  • 4 pickles
  • a bunch of parsley, chopped
  • vegan mayo, to taste
  • salt and pepper to taste


  1. There are two ways to cook the cauliflower.

With steamer: Just detach the florets and place them in the steamer. Steam for about 20 minutes.

    Without steamer: Detach the florets and place them in a medium pot filled with water. Add salt in the water. Boil for 20-25 minutes.

    1. Strain the cauliflower and place the florets in a bowl. Start mashing the florets using a fork or just use the blender if you want.
    2. Add chopped pickles, parsley, salt and pepper. Add mayo as much as you like. Some like it with more mayo, some with less.. so just add and taste 🙂

    What kind of pickles? Dill pickles? Seems like an odd combo of things but I might give this a try!

    Yep, dill pickles! It's an unusual combination but it turned out really good. Try it and let me know how it was :)
