Vibrant colours is what makes my rainbow salad a special to me. Its very appealing to eyes with green, orange, red, pale white. It simple and yet delicious. The crispness of the romaine lettuce, sweetness of the carrot, crunchiness of the peppers and chargrilled flavour from cauliflower, sunflower and pumpkin seed for extra nuttiness. The drizzle of olive oil and a squeeze of lemon is what it takes to bring the salad alive.
8 leaves romaine lettuce
2 medium size sweet carrots
1 red pepper
1 cup cauliflower florets
1 tbsp sunflower seed or mixed seeds
1 tbsp olive oil
1 tsp lemon juice
Chargrill the cauliflower florets and put it aside to cool down.
Chopped the lettuce, carrots and pepper and add them to a mixing bowl.
For salad dressing, stir the olive oil and lemon juice in a small container, until its well blended.
Dress the salad with dressing and add the sunflower seeds, give it a good stir.
Serve the salad with chargrilled cauliflower florets on top.
