Salad Series: Charming Radish Cauliflower Salad

Not only is this salad rapturous to my tongue, it’s complete fantasy to my eyes.  With a kaleidoscope of color that allures me to the bowl.  It looks like food that should appear in a Hayao Miyazaki film (Princess Mononoke, Spirited Away, Howl’s Moving Castle), and heaven knows I’m a fan.

Radish and cauliflower in the same salad?  Sign me up!  I make this salad for my family and friends that are hard to please, and they always walk away CHARMED!

Ingredients for Charming Cauliflower Salad:

4 – cups cauliflower (heads only)

2 – cups baby heirloom tomatoes (sliced in half)

3 – cups persian cucumber (sliced)

1 1/2 – cup radish (sliced)

2 – cups feta cheese (crumbled)

3 – cups pita chips

To your liking – Trader Joe’s Greek style feta dressing (Optional)

 

In a large pot  bring water to a boil. Add cauliflower heads and boil for 4 to 5 minutes. Then take off flame, drain and place in an ICE bath or run under cold water.

Drain cauliflower from ice bath and set to the side.  Meanwhile slice the other vegetables.

In a big mixing bowl add all ingredients.

Then mix with your hands or a spoon, until combined.  That’s it…you’re done.

I like to use feta dressing on top, but my mom likes to use Italian.  Either way, here’s a photo of the dressing I use. :)

 

Nice to meet you!

    Even though I’m back at work, I’m still keeping busy in the kitchen. Made this yummy salad last night and Miles’ excitement was PRICELESS. He had me pack him some for lunch today, came home and had some more, AND will be taking the rest of it for lunch again tomorrow. Yums!
