Cauliflower Shawarma Salad

Zissy Lewin

It’s a salad that tastes like a shawarma, it’s a cauliflower shawarma salad. The cauliflower is rubbed in a shawarma spice mix and roasted and tossed together with shawarma essentials – Israeli salad, a tahini sauce and some pearled couscous. Ok I digress, couscous is not an essential, a pita or laffa is – but pearled couscous goes better. There are also some chickpeas thrown in. If you like shawarma, you’ll love this salad version. And while I may tend to call salads a meal, where they are more passable as a side, this shawarma salad is a solid and satisfying meal.
