Meatless Monday - Cauliflower Blueberry and Avocado Salad

Have you ever tried watercress? It’s a green, leafy vegetable that packs a lot of nutrition and has a slightly peppery taste. It’s not hot, just a little bit of spice.  To prepare it you want to wash and rinse like any other leafy green then simply cut off the largest stems. Toss it into your salad bowl. It’s that easy.

You can cook the cauliflower ahead of time or, if you like raw cauliflower you can skip the roasting altogether.

I added the blueberries to the salad because we have some ripening in the garden and are trying to find every excuse possible to enjoy them.

As you can see, this salad is vegan and gluten free. The protein comes from the almonds.
