It may be time for salads and all things healthy but that certainly doesn’t mean it has to be boring, try this dukkah cauliflower and roasted shallot salad.
Happy 2017 everyone!
I hope the start of the New Year has been good to you. So far it has only brought me a stinking cold which has set me back right at the start of the year but things can only get better as they say. Maybe my cold is a sign that Its time to put some goodness back into my body. No more cheese and crackers for every meal. I really do generally resist jumping on the health kick band wagon in January but it is hard not to especially when your immune system is shouting at you to eat a vegetable.
So yes for my first post of the year I bring you a salad. However Im not into limp lettuce or still feeling hungry after my meal so my salad is really rather filling and packed full of flavour. The roasted cauliflower is delicious with the pistachio Dukkah and the sticky shallots and dried cranberries means every mouthful your getting something exciting. Dukkah if you haven’t heard of it before is an Egyptian condiment usually made with hazelnuts and spices. Its often eaten with bread as a dip but is also great as a seasoning on veg, meat or fish. You can play around with the nuts and spices, I was inspired by Kellies Kale and roasted Cauliflower salad for this over at Kellies food to glow.
So get creative with your salads this January and you may well find they stick around in your diet all year long and not just for the first week or two.
