Summer Cauliflower Salad

I saw this recipe on Facebook (there is always something super mouth watering posted on Facebook, am I right?) and it jumped out at me right away because I love cauliflower and I had almost all of the other ingredients in my fridge at that moment. Done!

This is great served as a side dish and keeps well in the fridge for a week.

Summer Cauliflower Salad, serves about 6 as a side

INGREDIENTS

1 head cauliflower
Salt and pepper to taste
2 tablespoons olive oil

For the dressing:

1/2 cup plain yogurt
1 heaping tablespoon dijon mustard
1 scant tablespoon honey
2 tablespoons fresh dill, chopped
1 teaspoon olive oil
1 garlic clove, crushed
Juice of 1/2 lemon
3-4 spring onions, chopped
3 stalks celery, diced
3-4 hardboiled eggs, chopped
Salt & pepper to taste

PREPARATION

  1. Preheat oven to 400˚F.
  2. Slice cauliflower into small florets.
  3. Place cauliflower onto baking sheet and season with salt, pepper and olive oil.
  4. Bake in preheated oven for 25 minutes or until lightly browned and a bit crispy.
  5. In a large bowl, combine all dressing ingredients. Set aside.
  6. Once cauliflower is cooked, set aside and let cool slightly before adding to the yogurt dressing.
  7. Refrigerate until cold. (This could be served warm, but I preferred it overnight after the flavors could mix together.)
  8. Garnish with more freshly chopped dill before serving.

If you really love mustard (I do) add even more to the dressing. The celery and dill really add a bright freshness to this salad. This is basically a potato salad recipe with the cauliflower replacing the potatoes. It is a perfect side dish for summer. Enjoy!
