1/2a cucumberfinely diced
1red or orange pepperseeded and diced
2large handfuls of fresh mintchopped
2large handfuls of fresh parsleychopped
Seeds from 1/4 pomegranate
For the dressing:
5tablespoonsextra virgin olive oil
Finely grated zest of half an orange
Freshly squeezed juice of one orange
Sea salt and freshly ground pepper
Mix all the dressing ingredients together, season and set aside.
Using the large holes of a grater, grate the cauliflower florets into fine pieces. Alternatively you can use a food processor to chop the cauliflower into very small pieces. Don't process/grate the cauliflower too fine - you want to keep some texture.
Place the cauliflower in a large mixing bowl and add the spring onion, cucumber, pepper, radishes, mint, parsley, feta cheese and pomegranate seeds.
Pour the dressing on top of the salad and stir until everything is coated evenly in the dressing.
Just before serving, sprinkle with more pomegranate seeds and add a little drizzle of pomegranate molasses.
you can swap the parsley for fresh dill, if preferred.
