Marinated Cauliflower Salad

Marinated Cauliflower Salad

via Vegetarian Times

September 2010 p. 75

A lemony marinade tenderizes cauliflower florets just enough to give them a slightly chewy texture that still crunches. Serve alongside Mediterranean-style offerings, or use as a two-in-one topping and dressing for a simple tossed salad.


1. Whisk together lemon juice, mustard, garlic, and oil in small bowl. Toss with cauliflower in large nonreactive bowl, cover, and refrigerate 4 to 8 hours. Stir 1 or 2 times while marinating.

2. Stir bell pepper and parsley into marinated cauliflower. Season with salt and pepper, if desired, and sprinkle with shaved Parmesan, if using.
