Cauliflower Salad

This tasty and filling salad is a must have in my family during winter. Very easy to make, you can have any dressing of your choice, just spoon it over or serve as a side. A delight for the weight watchers as well, you may have this with a piece of fish or boiled chicken, if you are on a low carb diet. What a satisfying dinner without the guilt.


  • Cauliflower - 1, cut into florets
  • Spinach leaves - 10-12
  • Olive - 10 - 12

  • Olive Oil - 2 tbsp.
  • Tomato - 2, pureed
  • Tomato Sauce - 1 tsp
  • Green chilli - 1, pureed with tomato
  • Parsley - 1 tbsp.

Steam the cauliflowers in salted water for 5 minutes, then remove from water and lightly sauté in olive oil.

 In the same water, blanch the spinach leaves and keep aside. Don't discard the liquid.
