Cauliflower Couscous Chicken Salad
Cauliflower is actually underrated and underused. It's extremely nutritious and full of goodness. Use this recipe as a basis to experiment with other flavour combinations - try it with smoked mackerel instead of chicken, for example. If you want a warm dish, just microwave the cauliflower on its own and then add the other ingredients.
1 cauliflower, broken into florets
1/4 cup pomegranate seeds
5 sun-dried tomatoes, roughly chopped
2 jarred roasted red peppers, roughly chopped
2 tbsp walnut oil or olive oil
1/4 cup walnuts, roughly chopped
1/2 bunch of chives, finely sliced
1/2 bunch of parsley, leaves only, roughly chopped
large handful of baby spinach leaves
3/4lb cooked skinless chicken breast (deli chicken is perfect)
juice of 1 lemon
1) Place the cauliflower florets in a food processor and pulse until they have a couscous-like texture.
2) Tip your cauliflower couscous into a large bowl and add all the other ingredients except the chicken and lemon juice. Mix thoroughly.
3) Pile up your couscous on plates, then top with the cooked chicken and a good squeeze of lemon juice.
