Shaved Cauliflower Brussels Sprout Salad with Dates Pears and Cashews Recipe

Servings 2


Pickled Onions

  • 1/2 cup unfiltered apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon organic sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 red onion halved, thinly sliced

Cauliflower Salad

  • 2 cups cauliflower florets larger ones
  • 2 cups brussels sprouts bottoms trimmed and loose outer leaves removed
  • 2 cups watercress
  • 1 pear peeled, sliced
  • 2 tablespoons toasted cashews
  • 4 Medjool dates pitted, chopped


  • 1 tablespoon flaxseed oil
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 tablespoon white balsamic vinegar


Pickled Onions

  1. Mix together vinegar, salt and sugar in a small container until sugar and salt dissolve; add sliced onions and toss gently; let sit at room temperature for an hour; refrigerate if you're not using right away.

Cauliflower Salad

  1. Thinly slice cauliflower florets and brussels sprouts using mandoline. You will have smaller pieces that break off (save these and make Roasted Cauliflower and Brussels Sprouts for another meal).
  2. Lay watercress in bottoms of 2 individual salad bowls. Layer shaved cauliflower, brussels sprouts and pears on top. Add a few slices of pickled onion. Sprinkle with toasted cashews and chopped dates.
  3. Whisk together Dressing ingredients. Drizzle on top of salad and serve.
