I found this recipe in a local paper and it has become my favorite topping for cauliflower. I like it because the glaze adds color and also enhances the flavor with a little zip. It works well with any entrée. —Rita Reinke, Wauwatosa, Wisconsin

  • 1 tablespoon plain yogurt
  • 1 tablespoon mayonnaise
  • 1/2 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1/8 teaspoon dill weed
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
