Cauliflower Rice Summer Salad

I am making this for dinner tonight.  Cauliflower is such a wonderful veggie. I have made mashed cauliflower, but haven’t tried cauliflower rice yet.  Sodium Girl has great recipes on her blog.

Simple Cauliflower Rice Summer Salad



  • 3 cups chopped cauliflower florets
  • 1 ear corn, kernels removed
  • 1/4 cup fresh basil, cut in ribbons (or parsley, roughly torn)
  • 1 lemon, zest and juice
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 tsp salt-free garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp red chili pepper flakes
  • 1/8 freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 medium shallot, minced


Add the cauliflower florets to a food processor and pulse until they resemble a crumbly, rice-like texture. Transfer the cauliflower to a serving bowl and add the corn and herbs. Mix until combined.

Pour the lemon juice into a small mixing bowl, and while whisking, slowly add the olive oil. Add the fresh herbs, spices, and shallot. Whisk until well combined. If not serving right away, refrigerate the cauliflower, corn, and herb salad separately from the dressing. And when ready to serving, mix in the dressing and any leftover fresh herbs on top.
