Moroccan Rainbow Salad with Harissa Dressing

Morroc avo 59

Cauliflower rice seasoned with Moroccan flavours-delicious!

This salad always makes me smile with its bright vibrant cheerful colours. It also tastes delicious & is so good for you! It is crammed with vegetables, loaded with nutrients & also gluten-free, low carb, vegetarian & vegan (providing you choose your topping accordingly-see later). Clean-eating at its best!

Pretty!

I am a recent convert to cauliflower (as readers of my cauliflower crust & cauliflower fried rice recipes will know). This dish celebrates the rice-like texture you get by blitzing cauliflower in a food processor or blender then toasting the raw califlower rice with the Moroccan spice sumac (which also takes away the sulphury odour & flavour of raw cauliflower which has previously put me off them!).

Low carb rice! Cauliflower rice.

The bitter lemon flavour of the sumac is balanced with the sweetness of pomegranate seeds & roasted veg & then there is heat from the harissa dressing. The addition of fresh herbs gives this dish a wonderful light fragrance (& nutrients!) too.

This salad is tasty on its own or with different toppings: sliced avocado, tofu, feta cheese, chicken & prawns work brilliantly.

Delicious on its own…

Morroc 23 Feta

Delicious with toppings. eg. Feta cheese

I love including roasted sweet potato &/ or squash to this recipe. When the oven is on for other dishes & when there is space(!) I try & roast a tray of  vegetables, so that I can add the cooled roasted veg to salads like this one, healthy pizza & buddha bowls (see elsewhere in this blog) as required. By doing this, it makes it really  easy & convenient to rustle up healthy meals during the working week. (Simply roast squares of root veg cut to about 2cm cubes in a little rapeseed oil for about 40mins & store the cooled roasted veg in airtight tupperware in the fridge).

This salad is also fantastic as packed lunches too! (I keep the salad dressing separate in little tupperware pots until ready to eat).
