A refreshing, crunching salad – a nice alternative to green salads


  • 1 Cauliflower, medium head
  • 2 small dill pickles (or brine cured if you have them)
  • 1 Golden Delicious apple, peeled and seeds removed
  • 4 basil leaves
  • 1 can corn, drained
  • 3/4 cup plain yogurt
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt


  1. Finely dice the cauliflower, about 1/4 – 1/3 inch cubes. It’s important that the dice is fine and consistent. Shred the pickles and apple (coarse side of box grater), and chop the basil.
  2. Combine the above with the corn, yogurt, mayo, and salt.
  3. Chill until ready to serve.


The key is to make sure everything is diced very small (about 1/4 inch) and uniformly. I’ve tried using a food processor, but I haven’t had luck in getting everything chopped without it becoming too fine, essentially cauliflower rice.
