This is a fun, vibrant, healthier take on the Lebanese Tabbouleh everyone loves.  I switched out the bulgar with colorful cauliflower because you just can’t beat cruciferous for health!  I also omitted the oil, while allowing for just the tiniest bit of salt at the very end.  Adding extra lemon juice and a little garlic elevates the flavor, wonderfully.  Serve with these beautiful Radicchio di Treviso, or Romaine and let your guests eat as a pick up appetizer.

Tricolore Cauliflower Tabbouleh

  • 3 oz. each:  purple cauliflower, orange cauliflower & white cauliflower
  • Juice of 2 lemons, or more to taste, divided
  • 2 small garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 cup finely chopped flat leaf parsley
  • ½ cup roughly chopped mint
  • 1 lb tomatoes (about 3 plum tomatoes), finely diced
  • 1 Persian cucumber, sliced lengthwise into quarters, then sliced to ¼ inch thick
  • 4 scallions, sliced, white and light green parts only
  • Freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • Salt, tiny little bit at the end
  • 2 heads Radicchio di Treviso or Romaine leaves for serving
  1. Prepare the Cauliflower:  Place the purple, orange and white cauliflower into the bowl of a food processor and process until finely chopped..  Remove from the processor and place in a medium size microwave safe bowl.  Mix in 2-3 TB water and place in the microwave for 30 seconds. This softens the cauliflower making it easy to absorb the flavors.  Mix in 3 TB lemon juice into the cauliflower and add minced garlic.  Stir to combine and let marinate for 10 minutes, or longer.
  2. Add in parsley, mint, tomatoes, cucumber, scallions and black pepper.  Stir to combine, taste and adjust seasonings, adding more lemon juice or black pepper.
  3. Serve with Radicchio di Treviso or Romaine lettuce leaves having a spoon available.
