This baked cauliflower and potato salad is guaranteed to turn a cauliflower hater, into a cauliflower lover.

All throughout my childhood I used to be served boiled cauliflower and couldn’t stand it. 

To me it was just a soft, flavourless mush!

From these early negative experiences, I just assumed that I didn’t like cauliflower and it was going to be something I’d leave hanging on the side the plate.

Then I heard some close friends talking about how if you bake cauliflower, it can end up tasting delicious.

It’s safe to say at first, I didn’t believe them.

Eventually I got round to trying baked cauliflower myself and I couldn’t believe the diffrence in taste and texture. 

It results in something crispy and flavoursome on the outside, with just enough softness on the inside.

Since this discovery, I now LOVE CAULIFLOWER and use it in multiple ways.

For this recipe, we’ve created a cauliflower and potato salad with a creamy curried coconut dressing that makes for the perfect work packed lunch.

I hope you enjoy it and convert to cauliflower lover like I did.

Love & Hugs,
