Perfect as a side or for lunch, this bright, beautiful and super healthy salad is from my book The Healthy Life, and since its gluten and dairy free it’s suitable for most diets. Add your favourite protein such as tempeh, tofu, chicken, turkey or fish for a more filling and extra nutritious main meal.


Spiced Cauliflower & Carrot Salad

For the salad:

  • 1 head cauliflower, cut into small florets
  • 1 tsp Celtic sea salt
  • 1 heaped tbsp sumac
  • 1 tsp chilli flakes
  • ground pepper
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • ¼ cup dried cranberries
  • ½ cup pumpkin seeds
  • 2-3 large carrots, peeled into thin ribbons
  • 2 cups baby spinach

For the dressing:

  • ⅓ cup cold-pressed extra-virgin olive oil

  • ⅓ cup white wine vinegar

Swap your salt for Herbamare!

You can add more flavour by using Herbamare Seasoning Salt, which is made from sea salt and fresh organically grown vegetables, garden herbs and iodine rich kelp.
