refreshing & healthy cauliflower summer salad

Hello there!

I am so excited to share this refreshing & healthy cauliflower summer salad recipe with you today.

I have to admit that I am not a huge fan of potato salad. But this is a great alternative, and I bet you that you can turn non cauliflower eaters onto this and they will love it too!

The recipe is below but I will add, to save on time you can cook the red fingerling potatoes and the cauliflower ahead of time, say the night before, and have them in your fridge ready to go.

Then all you need to do is add a few more ingredients and toss the dressing on.

Everyone I have made this for raves about it and gives it 5+ stars.
The fresh dill combined with the crunchy cauliflower and bits of the fingerling potatoes creates the perfect texture and taste for summer. 

I hope you pin this recipe and try it out! 

Cauliflower & dill "potato" salad

Author: Melaine Thompson
Prep time: Cook time: Total time:


  • SALAD:
  • 2 heads  cauliflower, cut into bite-sized florets and steamed until tender and cooled. I like to use 2 different colored. For example, 1 white cauliflower, and one yellow or purple cauliflower. It just makes the salad prettier. 
  • 1 1/2 cups red fingerling potatoes, cooked and cooled.
  • 2 ribs celery, minced
  • 1 small red onion, minced
  • ¼ cup minced fresh dill
  • ¼ cup minced fresh parsley, + more for garnish
  • 2 Tbsp Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 1 1/2 cups Primal Kitchen mayoor your mayo of choice
  • 1 Tbsp yellow mustard
  • ½ tsp black pepper
  • ½ tsp  salt
  • Juice of ½ lemon


  1. In a large bowl, gently toss together your steamed cauliflower, fingerling potatoes,  celery, onion, dill, and parsley. Set the mix aside.
  2. In another bowl, whisk together the vinegar, mayo, mustard, black pepper, salt, and lemon juice to make the dressing.
  3. Next, fold the dressing in with the cooled vegetable mix until your veggies are evenly coated. Garnish with parsley and serve chilled.
