We made this salad. emoticon Great results!
This is a very filling salad and great to take to parties/lunches...etc... and for us and also for company at home.

I have only one slicer blade for the food processor.
It was very easy to slice the cauliflower with the slicer (especially because my husband did it...smile...)
It makes unified slices and looks very pretty with the chopped fine fresh baby dill (cut with a knife)
The almonds added a good crunch. I used raw almonds because that's what we eat, but I'll get from Trader Joe's their silvered roasted amlalmonds.
I'll NOT use the S blade!
We decided to add 2 extra tablespoons of light sour cream. Good idea.
The cauliflower was about medium size.
We like this salad and will definitely continue to make it.
It's a good solution for times when we are hungry. This salad will hold well in the refrigerator.

I asked my friend, and she is using the slicer blade of the food processor.
There are two kinds of blades: thin and less thin. She is using the bigger slicer blade (less thin)
I'm making it now and I'll use the regular S blade.
I'll let you know the results.

Looks yummy! We have lots of cauliflower in our garden this year. If the bunnies leave us some, I'll plan on making this!

Yes. That's what my friend does, Push it through the slicer.
I'm going to use the food processor, pulsing, with the regular S chopper until I get the size I like it to be.

Thank you for posting wonderful recipes with the PointsPlus, and putting them at all applying food categories, especially in "What's cooking this week".

Mimi, this looks good. I never thought of putting the cauliflower in the food processor. Do you mean you push it through the slicer?

HEALTHY & TASTY RAW CAULIFLOWER SALAD

A friend made this salad for a party and we liked it a lot.
It was crunchy. I'll keep making it.
Here is the recipe

INGREDIENTS

Small Cauliflower or half of a large one, sliced in the food processor
Fresh baby dill, chopped fine in the food processor ( As much as you like, to your taste ( I LOVE dill, so I use a lot)

DRESSING
2 - 3 tablespoons light Mayonnaise (Trader Joe's has a good one)
1 tablespoon olive oil (optional)
2 - 3 tablespoons sour cream, light or regular
Juice from one lemon
One teaspoon of Dijon Mustard (I'll use honey mustard from Rothchield farms)
Sliced almonds, toasted lightly in a pan, for decoration on top of the salad (to your taste and to how many points/ calories you're willing to "spend")
Salt and pepper to taste

DIRECTIONS

1. Slice the cauliflower with the same one you slice cabbage in your food processor.
2. Mix all the ingredients, except some sliced toasted almonds to decorate on top of the salad.
3. Refrigerate.

Yummy!
