Crunchy Cauliflower and Cashew Salad

I love the textures as much as the flavors in this fresh salad. It's crunchy, salty, creamy and even a little bit healthy!

  • 2 cups cauliflower florets
  • 2 cups green peas thawed
  • 1/8 cups scallions optional
  • 1/4 cup Swiss cheese diced, optional
  • 1/2 cup bacon cooked and crumbled
  • 2 Tbsp ranch seasoning mix
  • 1/2 tsp dill weed dried
  • 1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/2 cup cashews roughly chopped


  • In a mixing bowl mix together yogurt, sour cream, ranch seasoning, dill, salt, and pepper. Thin with a little milk if it looks too thick. You want it a little thinner than the consistency of sour cream.
  • Add peas, cauliflower, bacon, onions, and cheese (if desired) to creamy mixture. Toss to coat.
  • Adjust seasonings with salt and pepper.
  • Cover and chill for at least an hour, or overnight.
  • Just before serving sprinkle with cashews.
