Ingredients

For the Lemon Cauliflower Rice:

  • 1 small head of cauliflower cut up into florets (any size)
  • 1/2 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 large clove of garlic
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt and black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon lemon zest
  • 1/2 lemon, juiced
  • 3 tablespoons fresh chopped herbs ( a mix of parsley, basil and cilantro or your favorite)

Salad ingredients:

  • 1 1/2 cup black seedless grapes
  • 1 1/2 cup salad greens
  • 1 cup chickpeas
  • 1 cup sliced radishes
  • 1 cup grape tomatoes

For the Yogurt Dressing:

  • 1/2 cup Greek yogurt ( any fat concentration)
  • 1 small clove of garlic minced
  • 3 tablespoons minced fresh herbs ( a mix of oregano, parsley, cilantro and basil)
  • 2 Tablespoons white balsamic vinegar (use any fruit vinegar if you prefer)
  • pinch of salt
  • 1/2 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 Tablespoon (more or less) of water to thin out the dressing to your taste

Instructions

  1. Prepare the cauliflower rice (see the dill cauliflower rice recipe) by sautéing the garlic in olive oil and adding the cauliflower rice. Add the lemon zest, juice and herbs at the end once the cauliflower rice is cooked completely. Chill the cauliflower rice while you prepare the salad.
  2. Gather up the salad ingredients and arrange them on your salad platter.
  3. Make the Yogurt dressing by mixing all ingredients in a small bowl. Thin out the dressing to your taste and drizzle a little bit over the salad, leaving the rest aside.
