This vibrant Winter Purple Cauliflower Salad is a delicious & easy vegan salad with Cauliflower, Broccoli, Beans and a drizzle of Citrus Vinaigrette.
If anyone else is – like us – already fed up with fattening fried foods (FFF), this cute little salad will be perfect for you! It’s an easy cauliflower salad, that is actually tasty and pretty to look at!
I mean, just look at that purple cauliflower head!
We got this purple cauliflower from our special Sicilian supplier whom we also buy oranges, lemons, and peanuts from every winter. He gets the produce straight from his native Sicily and only speaks Italian, but always sells the best oranges. And sometimes he also offers other fun items, like purple cauliflower or artichokes.
Purple cauliflower behaves a bit like purple cabbage when you cook it. Meaning, it always needs a bit of acid to keep the vibrant purple color. When you cook it or roast it, the color will fade into a blue-ish tint, but just add a bit of acid at the end to revive the lovely purple hues.
So when we got our oranges and this purple beauty, we knew we had to combine them in a delicious recipe.
This Winter Purple Cauliflower Salad is topped with a citrus dressing, that ads acids and a bright taste to the vegetables. We mixed purple and white cauliflower, some broccoli, red kidney beans and slivered almonds, drizzled the citrus dressing over it, and topped it all with a few mint leaves, just because!
Give this Cauliflower Salad a go while the vegetable is still in season!
But don’t worry, if you cannot find purple cauliflower, just use the regular white cauliflower instead.
