Cauliflower Salad with Anchovy Dressing
Serves 4 – 6
If you’re an anchovy fan you’ll love this. The
packed full of healthy oils: olive oil with monounsaturated fats which
help raise the
"good" HDL cholesterol, and omega-3 oils from the little
anchovies. The salad is also low in carbs and contains protein
the cheese and anchovies.
This is great for grown-up’s lunch boxes and keeps well in the fridge for 2-3 days. Serve for dinner with a piece of grilled chicken or fish.
If you are not crazy about anchovies leave them out… try sundried tomatoes instead.
