I wanted to make something with cauliflower and something different. We love the roasted cauliflower, indian style with potatoes, and we love the mashed cauliflower with boursin (bad rachel ray, bad!).

But I needed something, I don’t know, salady. We were going to have some boiled fingerlings just dug. What goes with that? Ta da.. Cauliflower salad! Of course. The surprising thing was that it was actually pretty good. And fits the bill for vegetable + protein. A nice crunchy winter salad.

cauliflower salad and dahlias

Inspired by this recipe.
Feta Cauliflower and White Bean Salad
I head cauliflower diced small
1 15 oz can white beans rinsed and drained
2 stems of celery chopped
1/2 cup crumbled feta
1/2 cup parsley chopped
2 tbsp chopped chives
1 tsp chopped rosemary
1/3 cup olive oil
juice of 2 lemons
1 1/2 tsp lemon peel grated
1 tbsp red wine vinegar
salt and pepper to taste

In a small saucepan heat up oil and rosemary until you can smell the rosemary. Set aside to cool. Pour over cauliflower and the rest of stuff in a large salad bowl. Mix up lemon juice vinegar and lemon peel in a small bowl. Pour over top and toss. Season with salt and pepper.

Our other “white” salad is Dama Bianca.
