Cauliflower avocado salad

Eat with your eyes and elevate your salad with arugula micro-greens, caramelized cauliflower and garlic cashew cream. This recipe features cauliflower and important cruciferous vegetable.

Cruciferous vegetables are rich in antioxidants, fiber, and are a good source of glucosinolates – the sulfur-containing chemicals that are essential for skin health. Studies have associated a link between a high consumption of cruciferous vegetables in our diet and a lower risk of cancer. Be creative with your favorite salad or side dish by choosing to incorporate fibrous vegetables – that pop in color – like cauliflower.
