Expert Tips

  • The flavors of Moroccan cooking inspired this salad. Carrot salads are popular in Morocco, where parsley, lemon and cumin are common seasonings.
  • Cauliflower belongs to the cruciferous family of vegetables, as does broccoli, Brussels sprouts and cabbage. These vegetables contain anti-oxidants, which may reduce the risk of cancer. Cauliflower is also high in fiber.
