Raw Cauliflower Salad with Mustard Dill Dressing

I love summer food. It’s easy, fresh, delicious and bursting with flavors that you only get when produce is in season. Tomatoes are sweet and juicy, cauliflowers from the farmer’s market are fresh and firm, and everything just seems to taste a little better.

Raw, Vegan Cauliflower Salad with Dill Dressing

These days, I am making recipes that are nutrient dense and have great health benefits. The food is not as “sexy” as some of the things you find on the internet but with the “sexy” has come a whole new category of food that is presented as healthy but is anything but. I see far too many raw and vegan recipes that are filled with sugar, fat and unhealthy ingredients.

My focus has shifted back to simpler food that celebrates a cauliflower just as it is, but with amazing taste and appeal.

Today’s salad is super easy, very nutrient dense, refreshing and delicious. Featuring cauliflower, one of our hard working cruciferous vegetables, this salad picks up more nutritional points with the addition of cucumber and tomato! The dressing is full of flavor and whips up easily in the blender.

      Crate and Barrel but they don’t make them anymore. Sorry!

    The recipe lists Walnuts but then in the directions (first step), it does not exclude them. I’m assuming since we “top with Walnuts” it should not be added to the initial processing?

      Sorry…mistake. I will correct it. The walnuts go on the top at the end. Thanks!

    This salad dressing has such beautiful flavours. Thank you Susan! I subsituted the cashews with half a microwaved medium potato chopped, which gave it the same creaminess as cashews did ,with no potato flavour.Hope this helps those who can’t have nuts, l would hate you to miss out on this amazing dressing. :)x

    Hello – I am new to raw eating & love the look of this salad. i must admit that i really don;t like the flavor of dill, which other herb would you suggest as a replacement? Thank you!

      Hi Kamini, tarragon might work. Karen 🙂
