Cauliflower & Citrus Salad with Orange Tahini Dressing

A simple Spring salad that packs a punch with nutrients and flavor

Simple & Fresh!

While I was under the weather last week, I still had an appetite.  That’s when I remembered this yummy salad adapted from SuperFood Magazine that I first made last summer.  I was craving all the Vitamin C and this salad packed with juicy oranges, grapefruit and pomegranate was just the answer.

Raw crunchy cauliflower, juicy orange slices, grapefruit slices, pomegranate seeds and walnuts on a bed of lettuce, topped with Orange Tahini Dressing and hemp seeds.  Perfect for a light lunch or side salad.
