Cauliflower Cranberry Salad

1 small head of cauliflower flowerettes, cut to whatever size you like. I like them bitesize.
1/2 cup chives, chopped - red onion would also be great if you don't have chives and like a stronger onion flavor.
1/2 cup dried cranberries
1/4 to 1/2 cup salted sunflower seeds
3/4 cup mayo--could be more less, depending on the size of your head of cauliflower.
2 - 3 T. rice wine vinegar - or any kind you like

Mix the vinegar and mayo.
Toss in everything else, stirring gently to blend.
Refrigerate overnight or until cold.

I enjoyed this autumn salad for dinner last night. Just this and some roasted carrots and potatoes. I think I had a pretty healthy dinner and it was delicious!

I've really been in the recipe posting mode lately. This salad really is just one of those that you toss in stuff without measuring. I tried to give approximate amounts of what I used.

I think it's the salted sunflower seeds that really make this salad. You really need that salt kick to play off the sweet/sour cranberries.

I used these berries:


  1. That sounds simple enough Zoey and it is a pretty salad..I can almost taste it..I love that you are posting recipes!

  2. I never thought to put cranberries with cauliflower, yet there is a salad with broccoli and raisins. I'm game! We don't eat a lot of cauliflower, though Sean prefers it and broccoli in their raw state. Thanks for sharing. I too am getting more into recipes. Have to figure out what to do with some Talapia for dinner soon.

  3. Sounds good to me, but H won't eat anything with mayo in it. I'd have to do it in a vinaigrette.

  4. Cauliflower prevent colon cancer and contributes significant amounts of iron. It also contains vitamins E and C. I like to eat it at least twice per week and i love the taste. I like cauliflower in salad or another kind of recipes.
