For the salad
- 1 head cauliflower
- 1/2 English cucumber, chopped (about 2 cups)
- 1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
- 1 cup pitted kalamata olives, quartered
- 1 cup chopped fresh parsley
- 1/2 cup diced red onion (optional)
For the dressing
- 1/4 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
- 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
- 1 tablespoon Za'atar Spice
- Pinch of kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
- Cut the cauliflower into large chunks. Working in batches, pulse them in the food processor until it is broken down into couscous-sized bits. (If some large pieces remain, just remove and discard them.) Transfer the cauliflower to a large bowl and stir in the cucumber, tomatoes, olives, parsley, and onion (if using).
- In a small jar with a lid (like an old jam jar) combine the lemon juice, olive oil, and za'atar. Season with a pinch of salt and pepper. Seal the jar and shake to blend. Pour the dressing over the salad and toss to coat.
