Purple Cauliflower Salad with Lemon Vinaigrette (Vegan, Gluten-Free)

Sharon Palmer

This Purple Cauliflower Salad 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 veggies at your nearby farmers market or natural food store, too. I just love these cool, lavender shades of vegetables and salad leaves, don’t you? This is an easy, fool-proof salad you can make that looks like a million bucks. Plus, it’s perfect for your springtime celebrations!
