Mediterranean Cauliflower Salad


Salads are a great way to incorporate variety into your daily routine by switching up the ingredients and always keeping things interesting! Here is a salad recipe that includes cauliflower as one of its main ingredients. Use this recipe as a side dish to your main meal, as a topping to your green salad, in a wrap sandwich, or just have it as is!
Prep Time: 20 min                 Total Time: 20 min                Servings: 6-8 servings


  • 1 head of cauliflower
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes, chopped
  • 1 cucumber, chopped
  • ½ cup red onion, chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • ½ cup chopped parsley
  • 2 TBSP Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • ¼ cup fresh lemon juice
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ½ tsp pepper


  1. First, prep your cauliflower. Wash, dry, and cut the cauliflower into florets. Place the cauliflower into a food processor and pulse until it reaches a rice-like consistency. Remove from the food processor and place in a large mixing bowl.
  2. Add the chopped tomatoes, cucumbers, red onion, and parsley to the bowl. Mix all the ingredients together.
  3. Add in the minced garlic, olive oil, lemon juice, salt, and pepper. Toss the salad until well combined.
  4. Serve immediately or store in the refrigerator to allow the salad to absorb all the flavors from the seasonings and lemon juice! Store up to 3 days (but we be it’ll be eaten up much sooner!)

Dietitian Tips:
