Cauliflower Tapas

IMG 9708

If you are in need of a sleeper side dish this one’s for you. Unassuming, this Spanish-inspired tapas is really tasty and simple to make. I cooked this for a party I had over the weekend and it was the surprise hit.

What you need:

  • 1 head of cauliflower cut into small florets
  • 3 potatoes chopped (same size as cauliflower florets)
  • 1 small cucumber peeled
  • 3 boiled eggs peeled and halved
  • Coarse salt (for the cucumbers)
  • 3 tbsp olive oil + more for drizzling
  • 1 tbsp wine vinegar
  • 3-4 tbsp mayonaise (this depends how much of the mayo you want to taste)
  • A dash of smoked paprika
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • OPTIONAL 10-12 large shrimp shelled, deveined and cooked

How it’s done:

  • Finely slice the cucumber, place in a bowl, liberally sprinkle with coarse salt, and let stand for about 30-40 min. After allotted time rinse the salt off and set aside.
  • Boil the potatoes until soft. Drain and drizzle with a little olive oil over the top and set aside.
  • Boil the cauliflower florets for about 10 mins. until soft but not mushy. DrainĀ and drizzle with a little olive oil over the top and set aside.
  • Gently mix the potato, cauliflower and cucumber (and optional shrimp.)
  • Whisk the olive oil and vinegar and slowly add it to the mayo.
  • Add the mayo mixture to the cauliflower mixture and gently toss.
  • To serve, place the salad into a bowl and garnish with the eggs and season with a little salt and pepper and a dash of paprika.
