Servings: 6 servings
- 1 medium head of cauliflower cut into florets
- 1/2 cup diced cucumber
- 1/2 cup cherry tomatoes halved
- 1/2 red onion thinly sliced
- 1/2 cup kalamata olives roughly chopped
- 2 tbsp chopped fresh parsley
- 2 tbsp chopped fresh mint
- OPTIONAL: 1/4 cup crumbled feta cheese omit for paleo, Whole30, and vegan
Place the cauliflower florets in the food processor and pulse until broken down. If the pieces are uneven in size, scrap down the sides and mix together before pulsing again. They should be rice-like in texture.
Pour the cauliflower rice into a large mixing bowl, then add cucumber, cherry tomatoes, onion, olives, parsley, mint, and feta cheese (if using).
In a separate bowl, whisk together all the ingredients for the lemon dressing.
Pour the dressing over the vegetables, and toss until mixed and evenly coated.
Add more salt if needed.
Enjoy right away, or keep in the fridge until ready to serve. Eat within 3-4 days.
