Cauliflower salad with almonds

Serves 4 15 min
A fresh tasting salad that sets off cauliflower's mild and delicate nuttiness with a tangy dressing and the crunch of toasted flaked almonds. This makes a quick and easy dinner when paired with grilled lamb or pork chops.


  • 15g flaked almonds
  • 1 cauliflower, broken into small florets
  • 8 tbsp soured cream
  • 1 tbsp creamed horseradish
  • squeeze of lemon juice
  • 2 tbsp fresh chives, chopped
  • salt and pepper


Prep time: 5 min
Cooking time: 10 min
  • Step 1

    Preheat oven to 200°C/Gas 6. Spread the almonds out on a baking sheet and place in the oven for a few minutes, until golden brown, then allow to cool.
  • Step 2

    Drop the cauliflower florets into a saucepan of salted, boiling water. Simmer until they are cooked but still have some bite. Drain and run under the cold tap.
  • Step 3

    Thoroughly drain again and pat dry. Mix the soured cream with the horseradish, a dash of lemon juice and seasoning.
  • Step 4

    Set aside a few of the almonds and chives to garnish, then toss the remainder in the soured cream dressing. Dress the cauliflower, arrange on a serving dish and scatter with reserved almonds and chives.
