Cauliflower Salad Will Brighten Even the Worst Days

Boil a large pot of salted water. Add cauliflower florets and heat for 2-3 minutes until soft but crunchy. Then drain and rinse under cold water to cease cooking. Dry with paper towels.

Mix olive oil, lemon juice, minced garlic, Dijon mustard, salt, and pepper in a small bowl to prepare the dressing. Adjust spice to taste.

Combine blanched cauliflower florets, diced bell peppers, sliced red onion, chopped parsley, cilantro, and green onions in a large bowl.

Dress the Salad: Pour dressing over cauliflower and vegetables. Toss gently to coat completely with dressing.

Cool and Marinate: Cover the salad and refrigerate for at least an hour to blend flavors. The salad can be made ahead and refrigerated for several hours before serving.

Garnish and Serve: Top cauliflower salad with crumbled feta cheese, toasted pine nuts, or sliced olives before serving. Serve chilled or room temperature.

This colorful cauliflower salad is full of minerals and antioxidants, making it a healthful way to brighten even the gloomiest day. Enjoy!
