Greek Cauliflower Rice Salad
We are officially in the fall season and although I’m ready to break out the sweaters and boots, our weather is CA is still summer-like.
We are still grilling hamburgers and can wear open-toes shoes. In fact, I’m wearing a tank top right now!
Not only am I enjoying the sunshine, but my little garden of tomatoes are pretty darn happy too.
Lucky me! My tomato plants are flourishing with beautiful ripe cherry tomatoes. Growing like crazy.
So darn happy about that!
I just might be turning my black thumb to green! I have given tons tomatoes away to neighbors and our kids.
As well as eaten quite a few! I used tomatoes in this chunky avocado dip, taco pie, and this healthy breakfast casserole, and now this flavorful Greek Style Cauliflower Rice salad!

How To Make Greek Style Cauliflower Rice Salad
Michaela is a brand ambassador with Paisley Farm Foods, creating some amazing recipes with their products.
I kept gravitating to the dishes with Brussels sprouts like this Cheesy Brussels Sprouts Dip, which I made and is delish!
Paisley Farm Foods isn’t stocked at my grocery store, which is why I made my own Pickled Brussels Sprouts to make this cauliflower rice salad.
So you have an option, pick up picked Brussels sprouts prepared or make them yourself!
The same goes for riced cauliflower. Buy it prepared or make your own by pulsing cauliflower florets in a food processor.
First you will clean and cut the vegetables used in this salad.
Place them in a large bowl while preparing the salad dressing.
Homemade Greek Vinaigrette
The dressing for this cauliflower rice salad is made with fresh herbs adding lots of flavor.
I added a couple of tablespoons of red wine vinegar, which you can see gives the dressing a tint of color.
If you don’t have fresh herbs, then substitute for the dried version, but note that dried is more potent and concentrated than fresh you will need to use less.
When using dried herbs, start will a little and add more to your preference as needed.
