Professional Advice Creamy Cauliflower Cashew Salad:

  • Although my husband likes to use a lot of mayonnaise, I prefer to use less when making this recipe. Usually, I give in to the ¼ cup of mayonnaise and let it hardly cover the remaining components. To start, use a ¼ cup and then adjust to your taste.
  • This dish’s texture is really amazing. Although adding frozen peas to a dish may seem strange, the taste of those little frozen fellas elevates the dish to a whole new level. They hold up so much better in this salad than mushy canned peas and add a lovely crunch.
  • This is the ideal recipe to take along on a picnic. I also enjoy having it as a snack, with dinner, or as a side dish with my lunch.
  • Make sure not to boil the vegetables in this recipe, as they are designed to be eaten fresh.
  • Store this chilled cauliflower salad in a closed jar in the refrigerator. It’ll linger for three to four days.
