Cauliflower Herb Chicken Salad

This salad will knock your socks off! Literally you won’t be able to stop eating it! And that is okay… it is zero carbs and almost calorie free-no dressing needed! My inspiration for this dish came from Ali Fedotowsky, I made a couple of changes and additions to her recipe for an extra flavor punch.

I like to use roasted and salted edamame, it gives the salad that crouton crunch feel while being carb free. I also added chciekn for some extra protein but you can leave that off to keep it vegetarian,

Tips for this salad:

-Don’t over cook the cauliflower or it gets soggy

-Only use salt and pepper for spices… let the lemon juice and herbs do the talking!

-Grill your chicken for an added smokey flavor or use your favorite rotisserie chicken

-Serve cold or at room temperature

 

Let me know what you all think! I know you won’t be disappointed!
