Purple Cauliflower Salad with Lemon Vinaigrette

Sharon Palmer

This Purple Cauliflower Salad with Lemon Vinaigrette is inspired by my garden—all of the veggies, including Easter egg radishes, purple cauliflower, and mixed salad greens, came straight from the soil. However, you can find these pretty veggies at your nearby farmers market or natural food store, too. Indeed, cauliflower and radishes come in a rainbow of shades, including pink, purple, red, and striped radishes, and yellow, green, purple, and pink cauliflower. I just love these cool, lavender shades of vegetables and salad leaves in this recipe, don’t you? This salad is an easy, fool-proof recipe you can make in just a few minutes, but it still looks like a million bucks. Plus, it’s perfect for your special celebrations!
