I've always been a little perplexed by raw food restaurants. And entire menu made up of food that isn't cooked? Really? And so I was somewhat mystified, but also intrigued when I saw this recipe, labeled Raw Cauliflower Couscous over at the Tasty Kitchen site. The first step in this salad recipe calls for grating the cauliflower, which I had never done. Let me tell you, it gives the cauliflower a really cool texture - light and fluffy, but with a crunch. What really caught my eye were the kalamata olives, capers (give me some brine, baby!) and sun dried tomatoes. Now we're talking!
As you might guess from the whole "no cook" method discussion, this salad comes together in a matter of minutes. Just set to work chopping your vegetables, squeeze in some lemon juice, pour in a little olive oil and toss it all together. This salad was truly an unexpected treat, and one that just might change the minds of any cauliflower naysayers.
Now I'm thinking that raw food restaurants might be worth a second look.

Wow! This recipe is great!!!
I've never had cauliflower grated, but before I read the title you had me thinking it was rice, so I now have high hopes. Thanks for the idea, the salad looks delicious!
