Hidden Valley Ranch Mock Mash Potatoes Recipe, Salad Style.

Saturday, May 8, 2010

I'm always looking for new recipes and new ways to add a little more healthy foods to our diet.

Disguised, of course.  You know how picky little kids can be!

So when Hidden Valley© and TwitterMoms encouraged Moms to "recreate" Hidden Valley's Mock Mash Potatoes recipe, I jumped on it!

My creation turned into the Hidden Valley© Ranch Mock Mash Potatoes Salad.  Doesn't it look yummy?

Wanna try it?  Here's the recipe:


  • 1 head cauliflower, washed and broken into florets (about 4 cups)

  • 1/2 cup Hidden Valley The Original Ranch Dressing Light

  • 1 tablespoon fat-free milk

  • 1 tablespoon light margarine (tub style) or butter

  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

  • Classic Iceberg Salad (pre-mixed)

  • Bacon pieces

  • Croutons


  1. Steam cauliflower until tender.  (About 20 minutes)

  2. While steaming, place salad mix in to a bowl.

  3. Place cauliflower into blender.  Add dressing, milk, and margarine.  Blend until mixture reaches the consistency of mashed potatoes.

  4. Scoop mixture into center of sald mix.  Sprinkle with bacon pieces and croutons.

  5. Add salt and serve.

I served it as a side dish to chicken strips and it was a HIT with my family!   Especially the 5-year-old who is the SUPER PICKY eater of our family. 
It's tasty.  It's healthy.  And it's a fun "disguised" food.  So we'll definitely be having again!

If you decide to try it, be sure to let me know how it turns out!
