Chicken Cauliflower “Couscous” Salad Recipe [Paleo, Keto]

Louise | April 17
Chicken Cauliflower

Cauliflower is so versatile and nutritious!

In this cauliflower “couscous” recipe, you can recreate a simple and light couscous salad without the grains.

This salad is easy to make and you can enjoy the cauliflower “couscous” raw or lightly cooked (just cook it in some coconut oil in a pan or steam it lightly in the microwave or a steamer).

I’ve used more traditional North African flavors like cumin powder, lemon juice, red peppers in this chicken salad, but you’re welcome to change it up to suite your tastes and what produce you have available near you.

I hope you enjoy this cauliflower “couscous” salad for your next ketogenic (low carb) or Paleo meal!
