Method

Cauliflower Rice

Finely chop cauliflower to a rice consistency.

Food processor method: Add chopped cauliflower to food processor and mix until it looks like rice. Low speed, 20-30 seconds.

Blender method: blend 1 handful of cauliflower at a time on LOW speed for about 5 seconds or until a rice crumble is made.

Place cauliflower rice in bowl and add remaining ingredients.

Dressing

In a blender, combine olive oil, apple cider vinegar, dijon mustard, and lime juice.

Lightly chop herbs and add to blender. Gently pulse for several seconds, until herbs are small.

To Combine

Mix dressing with cauliflower rice. Add to salad and garnish, or enjoy as a stand-alone dish.

Store any leftovers in refrigerator in an airtight container. Will keep for 2-3 days.

Tips

DO NOT over blend/mix the cauliflower, this can make a mush or cauliflower paste.

Leftovers are lovely to save and use as salad toppers or added to soups!
