Ingredients

  • 4 eggs
  • 2 bags (1 lb each) frozen cauliflower florets
  • 1 bag (10 oz) Cascadian Farm® organic frozen peas & carrots
  • 1 3/4 cups reduced-fat mayonnaise or salad dressing
  • 1 teaspoon granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 tablespoon cider vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon yellow mustard
  • 1 cup chopped celery (2 1/2 stalks)
  • 2/3 cup chopped onion (about 1 medium)

Steps

  • 1
    In 2-quart saucepan, place eggs in single layer; add enough cold water to cover eggs by 1 inch. Cover; heat to boiling. Remove from heat; let stand covered 15 minutes. Drain eggs. Immediately run cold water over eggs until completely cooled. Peel and chop eggs.

    Meanwhile, in large (4-quart) microwavable bowl, place frozen cauliflower and frozen peas and carrots; cover with microwavable waxed paper. Microwave on High 20 to 25 minutes, stirring once halfway through microwaving. Drain vegetables in colander; rinse with cold water to cool. Place colander over same large bowl; refrigerate at least 30 minutes or until cooled.
  • 3
    In small bowl, mix mayonnaise, sugar, salt, pepper, 1/8 teaspoon of the paprika, the vinegar and mustard; set aside.
  • 4
    Remove vegetables from refrigerator; discard any liquid in bowl. Pat drained vegetables dry with paper towels; chop any large cauliflower pieces into 3/4-inch chunks to resemble chopped potatoes. Place cauliflower, peas and carrots in same bowl. Add celery, onion and chopped eggs.
  • 5
    Pour mayonnaise mixture over salad; stir until vegetables and eggs are well coated. Sprinkle remaining 1/8 teaspoon paprika over salad. If desired, cover and refrigerate at least 1 hour or until well chilled before serving.
