Cauliflower Rice Salad

Cauliflower Rice Salad (not so you’d notice!)

It’s summer – yes really! and it’s time for me to get back on it following my hols! (too much champagne Sangria) so here we go with this lovely Cauliflower Rice Salad

I wanted a tasty salad and today I  bought some cauliflower rice / or cous cous – whatever you like to call it, so I decided to make it the base for my salad (instead of carbs). So I added loads of stuff to it and I have to say it’s mighty tasty and I will definitely be making it again. I’m sure you’ve seen loads of recipes using Cauliflower rice? That’s because it’s super low carb and great when you are trying to avoid the starchy carbs!

I had mine with hot Heck’s Chicken Italia Sausages and it was yum. It was also super #HEALTHYEPLS. You could also try it with Chicken breast or whatever you fancy!

It would be perfect as a side at a BBQ – really perfect but I had it for lunch. And what’s left I’ve popped in a Mason Jar for lunch tomorrow at work.

Have a go at this lovely Cauliflower Rice Salad and let me know what you’d add!  I would love to hear,  please drop me a comment below the post. I can’t tell you have good it is!

And if you are following the Slimming World style of eating it really is perfect, I have avocado in mine and a drizzle of olive oil. But you can leave the avocado out and go easy on the olive oil, it’s still delicious and so so low!

If you love this salad then I think you’ll also love my Vegan Avocado & Sweetcorn Salsa. Another great BBQ side and it feeds the masses. It’s also mouthwateringly delicious

Thanks Cx #LovelyLemons

This is exactly the kind of salad I crave when it's getting hot (if it ever does). I'd never heard of cauliflower rice, but I love cauliflower so that would be right up my street. On my shopping list! Thanks for linking with #TastyTuesdays
