Day 4 of Salad a Day

Cauliflower CousCous

Okay, so I get that this recipe does not actually contain couscous. But once you’ve processed the cauliflower, it looks like couscous and it doesn’t taste like cauliflower. I’ve served lots of people this salad, and they haven’t been able to work out what the ‘couscous’ is. It really doesn’t taste like cauliflower.

I use a food processor to shred the cauliflower but you can also use a hand-held grater.
