BBQ Cauliflower Salad

Surprisingly simple and wonderfully healthy, this recipe puts a tangy spin on summertime salad. Cauliflower lends itself nicely to so many creative flavors (see this week's "Health Tip"). BBQ sauce is just one of the fun ideas. Start seeing, preparing, and enjoying cauliflower in a whole new way.

Ingredients:

1/2 head cauliflower (2-3 cups), cut into florets
1/2 cup BBQ sauce
1/2 cup black beans
1 avocado, sliced
1 ear of corn, cooked or raw, sliced off the cob
1/4 of a red onion, diced
1/2 cup shredded carrots
3 cups lettuce
dairy-free ranch dressing
crushed tortilla chips (optional)

Directions:

1. Preheat over to 350°F degrees.
2.
Line a cookie sheet with foil. Place cauliflower florets on the sheet and bake 5-7 minutes.
3. Brush BBQ sauce onto the cauliflower. Bake another 2-3 minutes.
4. Assemble all of the ingredients together for the salad.
5. Top with dairy-free ranch dressing and crushed tortilla chips (optional).

Healthy & Versatile Cauliflower

Cauliflower is incredibly versatile in recipes -– make it into great hummus, creamy mashed “potatoes,” fry it up crispy, even make it into spicy “buffalo wings.”

Beyond pushing the boundaries of culinary creativity, cauliflower can help keep you healthy too. Check out its impressive credentials:

  • A rich source of vitamin C and selenium to help strengthen your immune system.
  • High in potassium and fiber and low in calories, fat, and zero cholesterol -- it’s a great addition to a heart-healthy diet.
  • Cauliflower contains allicin (also present in onion and garlic) which helps prevent cardiovascular disease.
  • Studies show that cauliflower, like other cruciferous vegetables, can reduce the risk of lung, colon, breast, ovarian, and other cancers.
