Salad with Cauliflowers and Roasted Almonds

Are you a fan of cauliflowers too? Not many are and most people associate cauliflowers with a vegetable that is easily over cooked and boring. But that does not have to be the case. Actually, we rarely cook the cauliflower, as we think that the crispiness and fresh taste of the raw version is much better.

Later on we will add other versions of cauliflower salad, so if you have a an idea that you want to see realized, please write it in a comment, and we will take it in to consideration 🙂

Ingredients (4 servings)

1 cauliflower, bouquets

1 red onion

1 handful basil leafs

1/4 cup almonds

1/2 cup sour cream

1 tbsp. mayo

1 tbsp. apple cider vinegar

2 tbsp. confectioners sugar

 

Begin with whisking together sour cream, mayo, vinegar and confectioners sugar. Whisk until the dressing is smooth and creamy. Set aside while prepping the rest of the ingredients.

Chop the onion and basil leafs and mix with the cauliflower bouquets. Then pour the dressing over the vegetable mix and mix well. Let rest in the fridge for at least 10-15 minutes, preferably 1 hour.

While the salad is resting, you have time to roast the almonds. Heat up a frying pan and add the almonds. Roast at medium heat for 4-6 minutes. Stir occasionally to avoid the almonds from burning. Remove from the heat, when the almonds begin to release their nutty and delicious aroma. Chop when cooled.

Add 2/3 of the chopped almonds to the salad just before serving. Mix well and arrange the salad on a beautiful plate and sprinkle the remaining almonds on the top.
