This cauliflower ‘tabbouleh’ salad from Yotam Ottolenghi’s cookbook ‘SIMPLE’ is extraordinarily good. So good, in fact, that I’ve made it twice in the past week and passed on the recipe to those who ate it with me.
I have to say I was dubious when I read the list of ingredients. 800g of raw cauliflower?! Surely this was taking the cauliflower trend too far. How wrong I was. Left to marinate in the lemon juice and combined with all the other fresh ingredients, it transforms into something spectacular.
Ottolenghi suggests you serve this simple salad immediately but I made it a few hours in advance as I didn’t want to be in the kitchen when friends arrived. It still tasted incredible, as did the leftovers the following day.
