Dill Pickle Cauliflower Salad

A good old fashioned potato salad is just a wonderful creation, but with the manfriend being allergic to potato, you have to improvise and boy am I glad.  Cauliflower is such a wonderful substitute for potato and its a great way to sneak in that veggie for any cauliflower haters out there. Dill pickle add some pizazz to this great chilled salad.

I started pickling the cucumbers from my container plant, its producing at an alarming rate and I’m constantly in a sea of cucumbers.




  • 1 large head cauliflower, steamed and cooled. Cut into florets
  • 1 dill pickle, chopped
  • 1 rib celery, chopped
  • 2 spring onions, chopped
  • 1 cup vegan mayonnaise
  • 2 tbsp pickle juice
  • 1 tsp Dijon mustard
  • salt and pepper to taste


In a big bowl add the cauliflower, dill pickle, celery and spring onion.  In a small bowl combine the mayonnaise, pickle juice and mustard.   Pour over the cauliflower and toss.  Season with salt and pepper.  Chill in the fridge until ready to use.


This is great for potlucks or a BBQ.
