Why boil the cauliflower and dump most of the vitamins down the drain ? Steaming it is much better and I think it tastes better, has better texture and it's still full of vitamins.

Hello! You can steam, blanch, or boil the cauliflower in this recipe. It's really a matter of personal preference. Hope this was helpful!

This looks like a great, tasty salad for these hot summer days. I do prefer raw cauliflower to cooked, so do you think it could be made with raw cauliflower? It would definitely add a bit more crunch! And any time I don't have to turn the stove on in the summer, I am a happy girl!

Hi there! The Test Kitchen thinks that raw cauliflower would be very crunchy, so we suggest that you par-cook (boil, blanch or microwave) the cauliflower. ) Enjoy!

I have made this many times and never cooked my cauliflower.

I agree. Crunchy is the whole idea of not cooking it Test Kitchen Team! Duh! Raw is better!

I wanted to try this recipe but could not find it again. When I searched cauliflower mufifins, there were no results. It should have popped up even if I didn't know the exact name like "mini"

Hello - We apologize for the inconvenience. We're currently experiencing some technical errors with our search function and are working to resolve it as soon as possible. Thank you for your patience!

Why the "low fat" crap? If it says low fat its usually got something bad added -like sugar or some other extra carbs. Fat is not bad, but too many carbs are.

Because these are diabetic recipes

I'm not a big fan of cauliflower, but I did like this salad. I wanted something different than the broccoli salad I always make, and this was good. The dressing is tasty even though lte mayo is used.Also, I use a trick my mom taught me-I pull the tough outer strings off the celery by grabbing the strings at the cut edge between my finger and paring knife and pull down.

This has a good dressing. My kids said it tasted like a pasta salad. I will use this recipe at summer camp this year leaving out the bacon bits. It will be perfect for those that are on a gluten free diet.

I would use LeSeur early peas in the can instead of the frozen ones. They are so much more tender and sweet.

I haven't made this yet but it looks and sounds delicious so I will be trying it soon oh yeah Love Both Of These Yum )
