serves 6-8

Total time

40 minutes


  • 1 head of purple cauliflower
  • 1 carrot (finely diced)
  • ½ cup drained and rinsed chickpeas
  • 1 small Persian cucumber (finely diced)
  • ⅓ cup roasted red peppers (chopped)
  • 1 golden beet, roasted and cut in small wedges
  • 1 cup roasted Brussels sprouts
  • ½ cup black olives
  • ½ cup crumbled feta cheese
  • ¼ cup finely minced red onion
  • ½ cup roasted cranberries and/or pomegranate seeds
  • garnish
  • handful of toasted pine nuts
  • sprinkle of micro-greens
  • dressing
  • juice of 1 blood orange (about 1/4 cup)
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tbsp champagne vinegar (or other mild white vinegar)
  • pinch salt


  1. Remove the florets from the head of cauliflower and trim excess stems (a little of the top stem is fine to leave on) Put the florets in a food processor and pulse until they become evenly ground into a coarse grain-like texture, much like couscous. Put the cauliflower rice into a salad bowl and toss with some of the dressing.
  2. Arrange the other ingredients around the cauliflower, drizzle with dressing, and garnish with the nuts and micro-greens. Alternatively you can toss everything together.
  3. To roast beets and Brussels sprouts toss them lightly in olive oil, season with salt and pepper, and put on a baking sheet. Roast in a 375F oven for about 30 minutes or until just tender.
  4. To roast cranberries put on a baking sheet and roast for just 5-6 minutes in a 350F oven, just until they start to pop.
