Amy’s Curry Cauliflower Salad Recipe
1 head of fresh Cauliflower
2 tbsp Olive Oil based Mayo
½ cup Plain Non-fat Yogurt
1 tbsp Curry
Salt, to taste
Juice from ¼ Lemon
1 clove of Garlic

Place Cauliflower into food processor and chop until you have it at desired level of chunkiness.  Remove Cauliflower from food processor.  Put the rest of the ingredients into the food processor and process until smooth.  Then in a separate bowl mix the sauce with the Cauliflower.  This is best served with toasted nuts (almonds, pine nuts, walnuts, cashews, pecans) and bite size pieces of a fresh or dried fruit (apples or grapes, dried raisins or cranberries or apricots).  Serve in bowl with spoon, or over greens, or on bread, crackers, or wrap as a sandwich.
