Healthy cauliflower salad with almond butter dressing by Deliciously Ella

This salad is originally made with quinoa and if you pay close attention to the photo you’ll see that that is in fact quinoa you’re looking at. Now I didn’t have the proper picture that featured the cauliflower but I can assure you it is every bit as delicious and certainly more nutritious.

This salad is from the new book by Deliciously Ella and is simple. Adding that absolutely fabulous almond butter dressing makes this a perfect lunch salad. But it is made in a heartbeat, is quite filling (again due to the dressing) and is one of my new favorites. I love Ella’s recipes. They are so full of taste and simple to make. Well at least the ones I have made so far.
