Chargrilled Cauliflower Salad with Tahini and Herb Dressing

Cauliflower, my new favourite vegetable as a low carber and the wonders that you can perform with it.  Not the boiled to sogginess you got as a child (well, in my house…both my grandparents were ghastly cooks and I still feel cheated about that…none of that picture post card yummy granny made cakes for us…the horror stories I could tell…and probably will…).  Cauliflower Roasted? Yummy. Cauliflower Riced and used as pizza base? Yum.  Now thrown on the bbq and equally tasty.  Pour a nice Tahini and herb dressing over it and you have yourself a tasty dish.  Tahini is used a lot in Middle Eastern dishes and is in the popular hummus dish! Nom Nom!


1 cauliflower, cut into florets

2 tblspn olive oil

Tahini Dressing

1/4 cup tahini

1 garlic clove

1/3 cup olive oil

1/4 tspn sesame oil

1 tspn lemon juice

1 tblspn flat leaf parsley, finely chopped

1/2 tspn lemon zest


  •  Make the tahini dressing by whisking all the ingredients together well.
  • Brush the cauliflower florets in oil and cook on a medium bbq.  Chargrill for about 6-8 minutes until golden brown on both sides.
  • Drizzle the dressing over the cauliflower.
  • Eat and enjoy!
