Cauliflower and Cranberry Salad

Cauliflower and Cranberry Salad

Posted 2017-05-30 by finyfollow

I have mixed cauliflower and cranberries, and then, as my son has many pomegranates growing, I have added the seeds from this delightful, versatile fruit.

Preparation Time: 20 minutes
Cooking Time: 45 minutes
Serves: 2 - 3 as a side

Ingredients
100 g pearl barley
¼ cauliflower, cut into small pieces
1 pomegranate, [linkhttp://recipeyum.com.au/quinoa-salad-with-oranges-beetroot-and-pomegranate/ seeds removed]
35 g dried cranberries
30 g chopped walnuts
35 g pistachio nuts, chopped
A handful of parsley, chopped
2 mint leaves, chopped
1½ tbsp olive oil
1½ tbsp white wine vinegar
1 tbsp pomegranate molasses

Method
  • Put the pearl barley into a saucepan of cold water, and bring to the boil over a high heat.

  • Turn down the heat to medium, and cook the barley for about 30 - 40 minutes or until it is done.

  • Drain, and pour cold water over it, and drain once more.

  • Blanch the cauliflower in salted boiling water for about a minute (it is supposed to be crunchy).

  • Drain, and pour cold water over it, and drain again.

  • In a bowl, add the pearly barley and cauliflower.


  • Add the pomegranate seeds, cranberries, walnuts, pistachios, parsley and mint, and toss to combine.

  • Mix the vinegar, olive oil and pomegranate molasses together. Season to taste with salt and pepper and pour this over the cauliflower salad just before serving.

  • Mix together and serve.

  • I served it as an accompaniment with my chicken and barley recipe.
