Curried Cauliflower Salad

No ratings yet
Blanching the cauliflower slightly lessens its strong flavour, and the florets remain quite crisp. However, if you want a very crunchy salad, use the cauliflower raw. This is a versatile salad which can be served with any cold meal, or as part of a buffet. It would make a tasty part of an hors d'oeuvre selection, or it could be served on its own as a starter.

  • 1 medium cauliflower broken into bite-sized florets
  • 2 medium dessert apples
  • 2 medium carrots coarsely grated
  • 3 oz sultanas


  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 10 spring onions trimmed and finely chopped
  • 2 teaspoons hot curry powder
  • 6 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper


  • To make the dressing: heat the oil in a frying-pan, add the spring onions and fry over gentle heat until they begin to brown. Stir in the curry powder and cook for 1 - 2 minutes, then remove from the heat and leave to cool slightly. Stir in the mayonnaise and lemon juice, then season to taste with salt and pepper.
  • Plunge the cauliflower into a saucepan of boiling salted water, then blanch by boiling for 2 minutes. Drain and immediately refresh under cold running water. Drain the cauliflower florets thoroughly again, then put them into a large bowl.
  • Core and dice the apples, but do not peel them. Add to the cauliflower with the carrots and sultanas,
  • then fold gently to mix, being careful not to break up the cauliflower. Add the dressing and gently toss the vegetables in it, turning them over lightly with a fork, to coat them evenly.
  • Pile the salad into a serving bowl. Cover tightly with cling film and chill the salad in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours. Remove the salad from the refrigerator 10 minutes before serving.
