Frosted Cauliflower

 Frosted Cauliflower
I found this recipe in a small Better Homes and Garden cookbook I bought just before I was married in 1950. I adjusted the recipe a little by cutting the cauliflower into chunks. Then I can cook as much as I want. I like to serve this vegetable with pork as well as beef.
2 ServingsPrep/Total Time: 10 min.


  • 2 cups fresh cauliflowerets
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • Chopped fresh parsley, optional


  • Place cauliflower and water in a small microwave-safe bowl. Cover and
  • microwave on high for 4-5 minutes or until crisp-tender, stirring
  • once.
  • In a small bowl, combine the mayonnaise, mustard and salt. Drain
  • cauliflower and place in a serving bowl. Top with mayonnaise
  • mixture. Sprinkle with parsley if desired. Yield: 2 servings.
