Herby Cauli Salad

img_0206WordPress is telling me it’s been 2 years since my last post.

It had to be cauliflower that brought me back to writing here. We buy it from a local farmer on Sunday mornings at the boot sale in Exeter where we moved almost 2 years ago.

It’s insolently fresh, sweet and wholesome.

We now have a proper garden and growing stuff ourselves too. This year I’ve planted tons of different herbs which is a good way trying all kinds of combinations. I’m particularly in love with small leaf oregano, as it adds a citrusy zing to all kinds of food. I’ve also planted 4 different types of thyme.

|| This recipe is super simple ||

Cooking time: 5-10 minutes

Preparation: 15 minutes

Serves 2-3

  • 1 medium cauliflower
  • 1 small garlic clove
  • 3 branches of small leaf oregano
  • fresh thyme
  • parsley


  • 1 tbsp. mustard
  • 2 tbsp. cider vinegar
  • 3 tbsp. olive oil

Steam the cauli for less than 10 minutes keeping it crunchy enough. Run it under cold water.

Make a mustard vinaigrette: mix mustard with vinegar and then add the olive oil one spoonful at a time.

Chop the herbs, and garlic. Add good salt and pepper.

And serve!
