Cauliflower and Pomegranate Salad


In celebration of the official release of The Healthy Life, I am very excited to share one of my favourite salad recipes from the book. This is a salad my mum taught me to make, inspired by Yotam Ottolenghi. It gets tons of flavour from cumin, coriander and pomegranate. It’s super simple, too, and keeps your taste buds excited with each bite! We love making this for lunch and typically add about 100g goat’s cheese too. Yum!
