Cauliflower & Cucumber Salad



I made this salad  as a a side  when I prepared lentils pilaf  known as “Mujedereh.”  Sorry don’t have any pics of the Mujadereh  since I did not take any pictures the first time I made this…  I will share it one of these days.   We normally make cabbage salad on the side for Mujedereh, but since I did not have any cabbage at home,  I used a cauliflower.  The kids loved it too – they like eating veggies when they are in the raw stage rather than cooked.

This salad has no magic;  it’s just different than having your everday salad.  The below recipe is the basic foundation and can be altered in may ways.  Since then, I have also gotten my mom hooked.    In fact, in her version she added bell peppers, feta cheese, olives, onions and it came out perfect.

Don’t want to forget to mention that my daughter, Anabelle got me this salad bowl for my birthday.  It’s so pretty, isn’t it?

    I was admiring the bowl before I got to the recipe itself. It’s gorgeous. Your daughter has excellent taste.

    I would love to see your recipe for Mujedereh when you get a chance to post it. The salad looks phenomenal. You’re right. This is the perfect base for a lot of creativity to happen in a bowl! Thanks for sharing.

    That  is a very interesting salad choice. I never use cauliflower in salad before.

    Anabelle has excellent taste, like her Mommy 🙂 I’m a fan of cauliflower, but not sure I’ve had it raw outside of crudites. Would be fun to try it out!
