Paleo Tabouli

Side dishes can often be a challenge when eating Paleo. Everyone gets the meat and veggies, but when you want something a little different it is not always easy to come up with creative side dishes.  This is one I have been thinking about for a while, and it came out well. The key is to make sure you don’t overcook the cauliflower because it will turn to mush and not give you the bite and mouth feel of Tabouli. Hope you enjoy!
Paleo Tabouli
5 C Steamed cauliflower (still some bite to it, you don’t want it to mush)
1 C fresh parsley
1/8 C fresh mint (to taste)
4 fresh chives
1 clove crushed garlic
1/8 C extra virgin olive oil
1/8 C lemon juice
½ tsp salt
1 small tomatoes, diced
½ cucumber, diced
Dice all veggies. Chop fresh herbs. Combine lemon juice, olive oil, garlic and salt in a large bowl. Add in chopped all veggies and herbs. Toss to combine. Allow to sit in the fridge for several hours before serving.
