Pesto Cauliflower Salad over Baby Arugula
Here’s and oldie but a goodie! Originally posted on our Abundant Health blog – this one is a true family favorite – even skeptics who don’t like cauliflower loved it!!!
I know I have touted the health benefits cauliflower before, but it still bears mentioning that – even though it is not green – it is one of the most nutrient dense vegetables out there. You can read more about the specific benefits of cauliflower in my Mashed Potato Surprise post here.
OK – Recipe time…
- One large head of cauliflower
- Juice of one lemon
- 1 tbsp Olive Oil
- 1/2 tsp sea salt
- 2 bell peppers chopped
- 1 cup cherry tomatoes – cut in halves
- 1/2 cup Coconut Pesto
- 4-6 handfuls of baby arugula
Break the cauliflower up into small, bite sized florets and toss with the lemon juice, olive oil and sea salt. Cover and place in the fridge for 2-3 hours to marinate (you can leave it overnight too if you have the time.)
Toss the marinated cauliflower with the peppers, tomatoes and pesto. Taste and add salt and pepper to taste.
Serve over 4-6 handfuls of the baby arugula. YUM YUM!!!
*** if you have any left over salad, its really yummy the next day if you warm it up a little with some white beans and maybe a touch more pesto sauce
