I have been trying out different salads and this Healthy Crunchy Cauliflower Salad is a combination of all my favorite parts of various recipes I’ve tried. I can’t get enough of this one lately! In fact, I just ate half of what was supposed to be a salad for dinner.

  • Prep Time: 15 minutes
  • Total Time: 15 minutes
  • Yield: 6 servings depending on size 1x
  • Category: Side Dishes
  • Method: Easy


Units Scale



  • About 1/2 a cauliflower, finely chopped (I cheated and bought a bag of raw riced cauliflower)
  • About 1/2 a bunch of celery, finely sliced (I peel off the outside stalks and use the middle ones with their leaves as I find them more tender and milder)
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped parsley
  • 4 green onions, thinly sliced (green and white parts)
  • 1/2 cup pumpkin seeds, raw and unsalted (I often add a bit more!)
  • 1/2 cup golden raisins (or more!)


  1. Mix the dressing ingredients in a large bowl and set aside.
  2. Cut up in small bite-size pieces all other ingredients and toss them in the dressing
  3. Let it stand a bit (if you have more patience than I do) for the flavors to combine.
  4. It’s so fresh, so crunchy, and so flavourful – I can’t stop eating it!!!

  1. Sounds yummy Esme, I love cauliflower! One of my favorite veggies, raw, cooked, doesn’t matter to me! I have never added pumpkin seeds to my salads, but I think I will give them a try. I miss croutons so I began substituting them with sunflower seeds, but I bet the pumpkin seeds would be a great match too. Thank you for sharing with Whimsy Home Wednesday!
