👉 To Blanch the Cauliflower:
2.5 litres / 12 cups Water
1 Teaspoon Salt (I have added pink Himalayan salt)
500g Cauliflower (cut into 2 x 2 inches florets)
✅ [Note: If you want to cut the cauliflower into even smaller florets (than suggested) then reduce/adjust the blanching time accordingly]

👉 Other Salad Ingredients: 130g / 1 red Onion - sliced 150g / 2 medium Carrots - 1/4 inch thick and 2 inches long slices approx. 150g / 1 Red Bell pepper - cut 1/2 inches thick and 2 inches long slices approx. 1/4 Teaspoon salt (I have added pink Himalayan salt) 1 Teaspoon Paprika (NOT SMOKED) 1/4 Teaspoon Cayenne Pepper (optional) 1/2 cup / 25g Parsley

👉 SALAD DRESSING: (ADJUST THE DRESSING INGREDIENTS TO YOUR LIKING) 2+1/2 Tablespoon White Vinegar OR ADJUST TO TASTE (I have added white wine vinegar. You can also use apple cider vinegar for this recipe if you prefer) 2 to 2+1/2 Tablespoon Olive Oil (I have added organic cold pressed olive oil) Maple Syrup TO TASTE (I have added 1 teaspoon Maple syrup) 1/2 Teaspoon minced garlic (1 large garlic clove approx.) 1 teaspoon dry Oregano 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground Black Pepper Salt to taste (I have added 1/2 teaspoon pink Himalayan salt)


Throroughly rinse and then chop the vegetables.

Bring a pot of water to boil. Add salt and cauliflower. Blanch the cauliflower in salted water for JUST 2 MINUTES and then allow it to rest in a strainer to get rid of any excess water. DO NOT OVER COOK THE CAULIFLOWER BECAUSE WE'LL COOK IT FOR THE SECOND TIME AS WELL, ALONG WITH THE OTHER VEGETABLES.

Now to a heated pan add olive oil, onions, carrots, red bell pepper and 1/4 teaspoon of salt. Fry on medium heat for about 3 to 4 minutes or until the vegetables are slight soft but still has a bite to it. Add the blanched cauliflower, paprika and cayenne pepper and fry for another 2 to 3 minutes on medium to medium-high heat. Turn off the heat and transfer the fried vegetables to a mixing bowl. To prepare the salad dressing: Add the vinegar, extra virgin olive oil, minced garlic, dry oregano, black pepper and salt to a small jar and mix well. ✅ 👉 ADJUST THE VINEGAR AND MAPLE SYRUP TO YOUR TASTE. Add chopped parsley and dressing to the vegetables. Mix well and serve with your meal. ✅ 👉 NOTE: ADD THE SALAD DRESSING JUST BEFORE SERVING.


👉 Add the salad dressing little at a time to the salad and taste as you go. Do not add the entire salad dressing at once. Remember you can always add more dressing but cannot remove it once added :)
