Caraway and cauliflower are a match that brings to mind wursts, kraut and foamy, cold mugs of beer. Alas, not everyone loves that caraway flavor so leave out the caraway seeds if you prefer—the salad's wonderful either way.

I love this salad, great alternative to potato salad and less calories. The only thing I do differenlty, is to partially cook the cauliflower for about 3 minutes in boiling water. I found the texture and taste to be much more pleasing than the raw cauliflower.

I thought this salad was nasty! I dont know.. I'm more of a green girl and I just thought there was way to much cauliflower! I mean.. helloooo.. its a white vegetable, hence it doesn't do much justice for you...


Loved this! I didn't use the caraway and it was still very good and so simple!


This was fantastic! I was a bit skeptical while preparing but was pleasently surprised with the outcome. As previously said the mayo is not overwhelming at all, and paired amazingly with the apple. I also used scallions instead of shallots and it seemed to work out. I used frozen cauliflower instead of fresh to save a bit of money and it wasn't bad. Probably would be better with fresh but I would make it again using frozen in a pinch. Left out the Caraway seeds and added the ground mustard.

This may be one of my favorite new recipe's.


Nice alternative to regular old cauliflower! I didn't have shallots, so I substituted green onions - with approval from my 13-year-old who prefers the latter! Nice flavor and the mayo isn't too overwhelming!


My husband and I really enjoyed this salad. We did not have mayo and I was not in the mood to make it from scratch so I used 3 tablespoons plain yogurt and 2 tablespoons sour cream instead. I also added a few splashes of hot sauce and a pinch of ground mustard -- these are ingredients in my homemade mayo that I thought might complement this dish. It was a success! Our 15-month-old son also enjoyed it.
