Fresh and Healthy – Raw Cauliflower and Carrot Salad With Mustard Dressing

Raw Cauliflower and Carrot Salad With Mustard Dressing

Lately I have been eating a lot of this salad, healthy and incredibly quick to make, I even eat it as a snack in the afternoon, you know when that hour strikes around 4 when you just know that you won’t survive until dinner unless you eat something. Raw cauliflower is fantastic I think, crunchy, fresh and good for you, cooked cauliflower is equally nice but maybe it easier for non vegetable lovers to approach the dreaded cauliflower in raw form because it doesn’t taste cabbage and it isn’t soggy. Well, you try it and tell me. Years ago I posted another raw cauliflower salad that is quite nice too, maybe you will like them both.

RAW CAULIFLOWER AND CARROT SALAD WITH MUSTARD DRESSING

cauliflower
carrots
yellow mustard seeds, 50/50 toasted and non toasted
Dijon mustard
honey
salt
apple-cider vinegar or some other mild vinegar
extra-virgin olive oil

 Peel the carrots and either continue to peel them like I did here or grate them. Slice the cauliflower thinly, if the slices are too big, break them into smaller pieces and put cauliflower and carrots in a bowl.

 Make the dressing,  dilute 1 tsp Dijon mustard and 1 tsp honey in 2 tblsp apple-cider vinegar, add salt and when it all has dissolved, you add 6-7 tblsp extra-virgin olive oil and the mustard seeds and shake.

 Pour dressing over the salad and mix carefully before serving.
