It’s “faux” couscous. The cauliflower makes a couscous-like dish. It’s low-carb and phenomenal!

I like the idea of the grated cauliflower! I didn’t really enjoy the flavors of this salad. I felt like it needed some dried fruit for sweetness.

In this “faux” couscous the grated cauliflower makes a couscous-like texture. It’s low-carb and phenomenal! At the suggestion of my daughter, I used my food processor fitted with the shred blade for the cauliflower and the regular blade for the carrots. It worked great. I substituted dried herbs for the fresh and I think it created a better texture with the other ingredients. I left out the olives (which I dearly LOVE) because my husband does not like them. I used sun-dried tomatoes that came sealed in a plastic pouch instead of jarred in oil. These were great, too, and with the capers it made me almost not miss the olives. I sprinkled a little feta over it when I served it. This is a really great dish! I loved it and will make it again and again.

This took me a little while to dice up everything, but it was well worth it. Delicious!

This is really good ! Refreshing, crunchy, so full of flavor. I made 1/2 recipe and almost ate the entire thing myself. A keeper for sure.Can’t wait to share with friends.
