 Spanish Cauliflower Salad

A refreshing way to eat cauliflower as a salad or as a tapas dish.  The dish has a tangy sharp taste but is still light.   This is now probably 1001 ways to prepare cauliflower as it’s still my favourite versatile vegetable.  I still shudder at childhood memories of being served cauliflower, boiled to an inch of it’s life and with no flavour.  If I had been served this as a kid I would have embraced vegetables much earlier in life!  It’s best to make this the day before so that the flavours can marinate.   It’s a great salad or pot luck dish too.  I serve mine with the hard boiled eggs, quarted, but it is just as nice with the eggs chopped up.

Spanish Cauliflower Salad

The dressing is delicious and could be used in other salads.  Perhaps over a melody of vegetables with a little bit of lettuce.  It would also go well with chicken or fish.

    This looks absolutely delicious, and will definitely be getting made. I will be using cilantro instead of parsley. Love cilantro!!
