I always think those Greek salads made with orzo or quinoa look really good. The problem is that I don’t eat orzo or quinoa. I could make this with rice, as I do eat white rice. But now that Trader Joe’s sells organic riced cauliflower, I’m basically obsessed. I bought six bags last week. It’s just me and my husband. I don’t need six bags of riced cauliflower. But I was worried they’d sell out soon – which they did.

I’m completely in love with the riced cauliflower. It so easy and incredibly healthy. While I didn’t make this meal specifically as a low carb option, it is a great low carb salad. Plus the cauliflower is way healthier than quinoa, orzo or rice.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups riced cauliflower (saute until soft, then let it cool in the fridge)
  • 1/2 cucumber, diced
  • 1/2 red onion, diced
  • 1 large tomato, diced
  • 1 tbsp dill
  • 1 large garlic clove, minced
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • salt and pepper
  • options: olives

Instructions

  1. Combine all ingredients and give it a good toss.
  2. Serve cold.
  3. You can add olives, but I hate them.

Greek Cauliflower Salad! A delicious alternative to the rice filled versions!

    This sounds delicious! What’s your beef with quinoa? Is it a grain that isn’t good for your gut? What do you think of chia seeds, flax seeds or hemp seeds?
