Why I never thought to use cauliflower in a cold salad is beyond me. I used a whole head (lightly steamed) and left out the pasta and the dressing was just right. I made mine a day ahead and it was very liquidy, so best to dress it close to serving time.

Excellent salad! I only gave this recipe 4 stars because I cannot find when (in the directions) the dressing should be added. I stirred the dressing in along with the Parmesan cheese. FYI--I had to use frozen cauliflower florets; I just thawed them in cold water rather than cooking them. Also had to use shredded mozzarella cheese and regular onion rather than green onion. I, too, used regular tomatoes, but I took out the seeds and pith and just used the outer flesh, diced into pieces the size of halved cherry tomatoes. Finally, I would not double the dressing. The original amount dressed this salad nicely.

This was really good. I subbed cottage cheese for the sour cream (only because that's all I had) and it actually worked. The only reason I gave it 4 stars is because I omitted the cauliflower and there still didn't feel like enough dressing. I would probably double it next time. Otherwise...delish!

This is very good! I kinda just used what I had on hand, so I omitted the cauliflower, used regular tomatoes, a little dried basil and ditalini pasta. This was a nice change from the regular pasta/macaroni salads. Great flavor! I would make ths again, for sure! Thanks for sharing. :)

I've made this for serveral get togethers and it was a big hit. The dressing is fabulous - even the kids ate it despite the blue cheese. I doubled the dressing and used dijon instead of honey mustard. Also, 2 & 1/2 cups of uncooked pasta is basically one box. So, be sure to double the dressing. We don't care for cauliflower, so I just did 1 cup of chopped red pepper and 2 cups of cherry tomatoes. I let this sit overnight to let the flavors blend together. Overall, it's very good and worth the effort especially when there's nothing left in the bowl - you know your guests enjoyed it!
