Greekish Salad

Written by Kajsa IngelssonJuly 30, 2019

I just love myself a good salad. It’s healthy, easy, fresh and packed with nutrients. What’s not to love? The marinated cauliflower makes for a great healthy “cheese” in this vegan greek inspired dish!

Greekish Salad with Cauliflower Feta

Serves 2 as a side, 15 min


  • 1/3 head of cauliflower
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 2 handfuls of mixed salad
  • 2 plum tomatoes, sliced
  • 1 small red onion, thinly sliced and quartered
  • As many olives as you’d like, pitted and halved
  • 2 tablespoons pine nuts, more in a bowl because why not?

Greek Dressing

  • 1/4 cup (4 tablespoons) extra-virgin olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons vinegar (preferably red but I used white)
  • 1/2 to 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1 teaspoon dijon mustard
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper, to taste

Make it like this;

  • Add all the dressing ingredients to a high-speed blender.
  • Blend on high for 1 minute, or until emulsified.
  • Grate the cauliflower using a hand grater or a food processor. Transfer the grated cauliflower to a bowl. Whisk together the olive oil, lemon juice, and sea salt. Pour the mixture over the cauliflower and toss to coat. Refrigerate and allow the cauliflower marinate for at least 10 minutes.
  • Add the salad, tomatoes, olives, red onion and pine nuts to a large bowl. Pour the dressing over top, toss to coat, and divide the salad between two serving bowls.
  • Sprinkle the cauliflower “feta” over top and serve.
