Cauliflower Rice Salad with Dates: A warm favorite

The season of fresh and crisp salads may not be over, but now the summer season is coming to an end, and we feel a change in cooking. That’s why we eat our salads like kale and cabbage. It can be hot-posted – and it should be. It feels the same as real food and offers new taste experiences.

Cauliflower rice salad is tossed with a light dressing made from orange juice and toasted sesame seeds with a little oil and garlic. I like fruit juices in salad dressings: they are good to sweeten as naturally as possible by avoiding refined sugar. Of course, it should be 100 percent fruit juice. Feel free to experiment and use naturally cloudy apple juice next time.

What makes this salad a fun lunch or dinner: a combination with delicious dates. Fruit often goes well in a vegetable salad – for example, think sliced ​​fruit in a colander or orange plantains in a cabbage. We have already tried both: apple and bean salad and saba salad with orange and carrot. More creative salad recipes to follow soon:
