Creamy Cauliflower and Apple Salad

In my part of the country, it’s still rather chilly. The spring fruits and vegetables are not in the grocery, except those brought from afar, and the farmers’ markets are not yet open.  This salad takes advantage of late winter produce while creating a salad that is crisp and refreshing. It holds well in the refrigerator if you need to make it in advance. The original recipe came from Eating Well. The flavor combination of apples and cauliflower is a bit unexpected, but very good.

Creamy Cauliflower Apple Salad

5 Tablespoons reduced-fat (light) mayonnaise
2 Tablespoons cider vinegar
1 small shallot, finely chopped
½ teaspoon caraway seeds, (optional)
¼ teaspoon freshly ground pepper
3 cups chopped cauliflower florets, (about 1/2 large head)
2 cups chopped heart of romaine
1 tart-sweet red apple, chopped

Whisk mayonnaise, vinegar, shallot, caraway seeds (if using) and pepper in a large bowl until smooth. Add cauliflower, romaine and apple; toss to coat. Makes 6 servings at 2 grams of fat/serving.

I have lost 200 pounds. I did not do it through surgery – I don’t like knives and needles – or by joining a club, vigorous exercise, or rigorous dieting. I did it by gourmet cooking. To be precise, by cooking low fat, really delicious food. I love to cook as much as I love to eat. Food magazines are some of my favorite reading. I would feel deprived if I couldn’t have the sensuous experience of good food crossing my lips. This blog is about my perpetual feast, my passionate love of food, with recipes, photos, and occasional advice and principles that I have learned along the way.
