This salad is so versatile, you can add any nuts, seeds, and colourful berries you want. You can even cook the rice in a pan with a couple of tablespoons of water to have a hot side dish. (add all the other ingredients after cooking)

Cauliflower is rich in Vitamin C, so a great addition to your immune boosting diet. It also contains vitamin K, folate, pantothenic acid and Vitamin B6. On top of that: cauliflower is a good source of dietary fiber, has low calories and carbohydrates and has an array of minerals.
