Cooking Instructions

First chop your cauliflower into -inch (1.

3-cm) chunks?include the stem.

Put it in a microwaveable casserole dish with a lid, add a couple of tablespoons of water, and cover.

Cook it on high for 7 minutes.

Use the time while your cauliflower is cooking to combine your ham, cheese, onion, and pickle in a big mixing bowl.

Then pinch the ends off of your snow pea pods and pull off any strings.

Cut into -inch (1.

3-cm) pieces and put those in a microwaveable bowl.

Add a tablespoon (15 ml) of water and cover.

When the cauliflower is done, pull it out of the microwave and uncover it immediately?both to stop the cooking and to let it cool.

Put your snow peas in the microwave and cook them on high for just 1 minute.

When they're done, uncover immediately, drain them, and add them to the mixing bowl.

While your cauliflower is cooling, combine the mayo, mustard, vinegar, and tarragon in a small bowl and stir together well.

When the cauliflower is cool enough to not melt the cheese, drain it and add it to the ham and cheese mixture.

Add the dressing and toss to coat.

This is good right away, but it's better if you let it sit in the fridge for at least a few hours to let the flavors blend.
