Cauliflower, Cashew and Pea Salad

This is one of my favorite side dishes for spring/summertime! It's different and tasty!  This is my mom's recipe from forever ago.  I have no idea where she got this recipe from but it is very light and Gluten Free!   This one is really easy to make and it is great to take as a side dish for grill outs or a potluck! 

TIP: I like to go light on the mayo with this recipe.  So I tend to yield to the 1/4 cup Mayo so it barely coats the other ingredients.


1 to 1 1/2 cup frozen peas
1 head of Cauliflower
1/2 can salted Cashew Nuts ( I prefer halves)
1/4 cup chopped onion (finely chopped)
1/4 to 1/3 cup mayo
Salt and Pepper to taste


Chop your cauliflower to small pieces and wash thoroughly.  Add all ingredients to a large bowl and stir to coat. Again - I think this tastes best when the mayo is barely coating the other ingredients.  Add Salt and Pepper to taste.  Keep chilled.
