PIN Grated raw cauliflower detox salad
IE: the word you’re going to hear A LOT about over the next week weeks as we shake-shake-shake off the ALL COOKIES diet that we’ve had going on the past few months and transition into a month of New Year’s Resolutions sandwiched between eating kale salads, Detox Cauliflower Mushroom Bowls and whipping up a few green smoothie recipes.
It’s the month where your gym is gonna get MEGA BUSY and everyone is going to be bettering themselves after plates piled high with scalloped sweet potatoes, easy gluten free stuffing and OTHER carb-o-rific food happenings in their real person life.
You know what I usually associate the word “detox” with though?
RABBIT FOOD. That tastes like THE GROUND.
Something I RLY RLY BADLY do NOT want to have near my mouth at any time of my life no matter how “JANUARY APPROPRIATE” it is.
I can see you looking at your meal plan, loaded with weirdo, way-too-EARTHY, whole30 salads loaded with kale, for the next week and shaking your head VRY VRY vigorously in agreement. Just wishing that your salad could come in the form of a healthy chicken cobb salad recipe because, DUH, ranch.
Internet friends this grated RAW CAULIFLOWER detox salad recipe is about the change your mind about 1. Detoxifying foods being only for rabbits and 2. raw cauliflower being SO GROSS FOREVER AND EVER THE END.
#2 might just be my dealio though. Maybe you’re one of those humans who downs florets of raw cauliflower on the REG, like it’s YOUR JOB, and actually ENJOYS IT.
Tell me your secrets to being a healthy-food-eating QUEEN please.
Anyway. That is not me. To be 10000% honest with you, there are not many veggie friends that I actually enjoy putting in my mouth without a little roasting or sautéing situation going on.
UNTIL THIS EASY CAULIFLOWER SALAD.
Have you ever grated cauliflower before? ME EITHER.
I didn’t even know this was “a thing” that people do ‘cause I thought everyone was just super savvy about cauliflower now being sold pre-riced in stores
P.s thank you whoever decided to do this and end my #firstworldproblem about HATING doing it myself. Why is ricing cauliflower SO MESSY and ANNOYING?
But, upon pondering some detox salad recipes and scouring Pinterest for what people eat on a “Detox,” I learned about this not-cooking-method.
How to make cauliflower salad 101:
- You gotta grate your cauliflower, which is literally XACTLY how it sounds. Head of cauliflower + cheese grater + you = grate, grate, grate (don’t grate your fingers!) = GRATED cauliflower. BOOM.
- Mix this raw salad in a bowl with diced apples, spinach (GREEN FOOD HEALTH YO) carrots (SO MANY VEGGIES) and a chewy burst of sweetness from GOLDEN RAISINS that pairs well with addicting little swirl of cumin on your tongue.
- Blend-blend-blend creamy, RICH tahini and SUPERFRESH mint and cilantro in a food processor, adding a zest squeeze of lime and naturally sweet apple juice.
- Actually LOVE putting raw vegetables into your mouth. <– TRUE STORY. YOU WILL.
All the flavors and chewy-crispy-crunchy texture going on in this grated raw cauliflower detox salad?
So perfect. SO healthy. SO gonna make your inner glowing-healthy-food-detox-GODDESS shine through.
Or something like that.
Whatever, you get it.
Go boldly into the world of too-many-people-at-your-gym, armed with peace and love and good health and in form of a Tupperware of deliciously-detoxifying-goodness in your lunch-eating-future.
