Mediterranean Chicken & Rice Salad

 

Ingredients

 

2 cups "Cauliflower Rice" -(1/2 head cauliflower)

1 clove garlic, crushed                -1 cup diced cooked chicken

3 tablespoons wine vinegar       -1/3 cup diced sweet red onion

2 tablespoons olive oil                -1/2 cup diced celery

1 tablespoon mayonnaise          -1/2 cup diced green pepper

1/4 teaspoon salt                         -1/3 cup chopped fresh parsley

1/4 teaspoon pepper

 

Instructions

  1. Put the cauliflower through a food processor using the shredding blade. This gives you a texture that is remarkably similar to rice and can be steamed, microwaved or sauteed. 
  2. Steam the cauliflower "rice" until just tender, for this small amount I put it in a bowl, add about 1 tbsp of water, cover it and microwave for about 5 minutes. Put it in the refrigerator to cool. While the cauliflower is cooling, do all the dicing and chopping for the rest of the recipe.
  3. Mix together the garlic, vinegar, oil, mayonnaise, salt and pepper. Blend well.
  4. Toss the chicken, onion, celery, pepper and parsley with the cooled cauliflower. Pour the dressing on the mixture and toss. This is good when served right away, but even better the next day.
