Turmeric Cauliflower Rice Salad

PREP: 20 MIN  |  COOK: 20 MIN  |  SERVES: 2-4

We love this colorful, easy, gluten free salad. Add some roasted salmon or grilled chicken for a quick and delicious meal. To speed things up even more, use prepared cauliflower rice.


  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 1/2 half white onion, finely chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • Fresh ground pepper
  • 1 head of cauliflower (about 1-1/2 lbs), or prepared cauliflower rice
  • 3 tablespoons The Ginger People® Turmeric Juice
  • Parsley, cilantro and/or chives (garnish)



  1. Use food processor or blender to finely chop cauliflower, set aside
  2. Finely chop garlic and onion, set aside.
  3. Heat sauté pan to medium high. Add oil to pan.
  4. Wait until the oil gets hot then add garlic and onion and stir. Add salt. Turn down heat so garlic and onion don’t brown.
  5. When the onion is softened, add the cauliflower mixture and cook for 7 minutes.
  6. Add the turmeric juice and cook an additional 5 minutes. Set aside.
  7. Make the salad dressing: Add all the ingredients in a bowl. Mix well with a whisk.
  8. Drizzle dressing over salad, garnish with herbs and serve.
