Cauliflower Rice Salad

Salad

  1. Char the cauliflower in a cast iron pan or large sauté pan over high heat.
  2. Once the cauliflower has been charred, place in a bowl with the zucchini and dress with coconut lime dressing. Season with salt.
  3. Plate the cauliflower and zucchini and garnish with the pickled red onion, puffed rice and cilantro. Drizzle the molasses around the dish and serve.

Coconut-Lime Dressing
