Cauliflower and Black Olive Salad

Salad are seriously very easy to prepare, just throw into a bowl watever veggies or fruits you can find in your fridge and make a simple dressing, just drizzle the dressing and enjoy this healthy food. Salad are one of my favourite food which i never fail to make quite often whenever i feel bored to cook or i feel lazy to cook.Today's salad is one of the easiest salad i have prepared till now, just some cauliflower florets and chopped black olive slices makes this black and white salad. Today's post is for this blogging marathon and the theme of this week's blogging marathon is Soups and Salads with sides.

I had this salad for my lunch few days back with rusk type bread slices, the crunchiness of the partially cooked cauliflower and the fantastic chunky black olives makes a beautiful pair. Seriously i loved this easy peasy salad, you doesnt even need any specific dressing to spice up this salad. Just salt and pepper powder with some dried herbs and a tablespoon of olive oil is enough to spice up this crunchy salad.Check out the Blogging Marathon page for the other Blogging Marathoners doing BM#38 . 

3cups Cauliflower florets
1/2cup Black olives (deseeded & sliced thinly)
Pepper powder
Dry herbs
Olive oil

Bring boil some water, drop the cauliflower florets to the warm water.

Strain the hot water, keep aside and let them gets cool.

While serving, take the partially cooked crunchy cauliflower florets, sliced black olives in a bowl.

Sprinkle salt, pepper powder,dry herbs and drizzle with olive oil.

Give a stir and serve immediately.

Dont overcook the cauliflower florets, keep them crunchy.
