Cauliflower Will Never Be the Same – Salad Recipe

imageI’m not a fan of cauliflower. The only way I used to be able to eat it was smothered in cheese sauce. Now, I simply choose not to eat it. My theory? Why eat something you don’t enjoy?

I have now found a recipe that makes cauliflower not just edible, but downright tasty. As a super bonus, it’s extremely healthy! It’s still smothered in sauce, but in a completely healthy one.

Original recipe from The Raw Food Institute of Australia

Cauliflower Salad with Turmeric Dressing


  • 1/2 small cauliflower cut into small florets
  • 1/4 – 1/2 cup sun dried sultanas
  • 1/2 avocado
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 4 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 4 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tbsp raw honey or agave
  • 1 tbsp fresh turmeric peeled and roughly chopped
  • 1 tbsp seeded mustard (not raw)
  • 1 clove garlic roughly chopped
  • Generous pinch Himalayan or Celtic sea salt


  • In a large bowl place cauliflower florets and sultanas
  • Put all other ingredients in a blender and blitz until smooth and creamy
  • Pour dressing over cauliflower and sultanas coating well then cover and let ‘marinate’ for 10 minutes (up to 2 hours) remembering to stir once or twice
  • This dish can be served warm by placing the salad in a baking dish and sitting in a slightly warm oven while marinating


My notes

The dressing was extremely acidic, so I will halve the amount of lemon juice and/or apple cider vinegar next time

Lovely quick and easy meal, and the best-tasting cauliflower I’ve had in a long time!
