Cauliflower Salad


  • 1 head of cauliflower cut into florets
  • 4 slices bacon cooked then crumbled
  • 2-3 eggs hard boiled
  • 1 medium shallot or green onions would work fine, sliced thinly
  • 3/4 cup of Hellmans mayo**
  • 2 teaspoons yellow mustard
  • 1 teaspoon fine dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon fennel seeds chopped small
  • 1 teaspoon dill seed
  • 1 teaspoon horseradish
  • 1 tablespoon white balsamic vinegar
  • S&P to taste


  • Put the florets into a microwave safe bowl, add a couple tablespoons of water and top with a plate. Microwave for 4-8 minutes until fork tender (depends on bowl size, how many florets, etc.)
  • Drain and put into an ice bath. Strain and place in fridge to cool (hard boil your eggs, fry the bacon, slice the shallots, etc.)
  • Once everything is cool, combine the sliced eggs, crumbled bacon, shallots, florets, mayo and spices in a bowl and mix.
  • Dust with paprika and set in fridge to cool for a couple hours.
