Vegan Buffalo Cauliflower

Vegan Ranch Dressing



  • 1 red onion cut into slivers; I used my [Simple Rosemary Infused Pickled Red Onions], but regular red onions are fine
  • 4 stalks celery chopped
  • 1 cup tri-colored tomatoes cut in half (grape tomatoes work as well, or any kind of tomato you prefer)
  • 1 cup shredded carrots
  • 1 English cucumber chopped
  • 1 cup chopped purple cabbage


Vegan Ranch Dressing

  • Place all ingredients except dill and parsley in a high-speed blender.
  • Blend until smooth.
  • Add chopped dill and parsley.
  • Refrigerate until ready to serve.
  • It lasts one week in the refrigerator......if it lasts that long.

Buffalo Cauliflower Bites

  • Make the buffalo cauliflower bites according to the buffalo cauliflower recipe.

Assembling the Salad

  • Place lettuce and other salad ingredients in a large bowl or plate.
  • Add pieces of buffalo cauliflower on top
  • Dress with ranch dressing or vegan blue cheese


  • To make the best use of your time, prepare and cook the buffalo cauliflower while chopping the vegetables for the salad.
  • Make the dressing first and refrigerate it, so it gets cold and thickens.
  • If you don't like buffalo sauce, use barbeque sauce instead. Or, choose your favorite sauce for tossing the cauliflower before adding it to the salad.
  • Do not add the cooked cauliflower until right before serving.
  • Keep the cooked cauliflower and salad ingredients separate for leftovers, so the cauliflower can be reheated and maintains its crunchiness.
