Cauliflower, Spinach & Rocket Salad with Minted Tahini & Yoghurt Dressing

Mad about salads and constantly creating interesting ways to eat a variety of veggies, this salad works with any accompaniment.  I make large quantities to feed a family of four and have the leftovers for lunch the next day.

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 large or 1 small cauliflower
  • 3 Large handfuls of spinach and rocket leaves
  • Sprinkle of cranberries
  • Handful of cashew nuts
  • 1/2 red onion sliced
  • 1 avocado cubed

Ingredients for Tahini and Yoghurt Dressing:

  • 1/4 cup of Organic hulled tahini paste
  • Approximately 3 tbsp of natural sheeps milk yoghurt
  • Zest of 1/2 lemon and juice  
  • Large handful of chopped mint
  • 1 small clove of garlic smashed to form a paste
  • Salt to taste

Method:

  1. Break the cauliflower into florets and steam till tender. Once cooled add the rest of the ingredients into a large salad bowl.
  2. Make the dressing!  Mix the tahini and yoghurt first then add the remaining ingredients to suit your taste. Adjust the quantities of yoghurt and lemon juice to achieve a smooth, creamy consistency and then stir some through the salad with some extra on the side.

Options:

  • Add freshly chopped coriander or dill
  • Add a touch of saffron to the dressing
