Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Cauliflower contains little calories but also contain almost every vitamin and mineral you need throughout the day. It’s pretty dense and the lime juice in this recipe breaks down its fibers, resulting in a salad or dip so tasty that you won’t want to share. Serve with baked tortilla chips or spoon into whole wheat pitas for a grab-and-go meal!


  • 1 small head of cauliflower, finely chopped (about 2½ cups)
  • 2 cups tomatoes, diced (about 4 medium)
  • 1/2 cup chopped red or yellow onion
  • 1 jalapeno, diced (Optional)
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup lime juice
  • 1/4 cup chopped cilantro
  • 1 avocado, diced
  • Freshly ground black pepper, to taste


  1. In a medium bowl, mix together the cauliflower, tomatoes, red onion, jalapeño, salt, and lime juice. Add the cilantro and let that sit in the fridge for at least 1 hour so that the lime juice has some time to soften everything up. That’s its job, so let it work.
  2. Add the avocado and serve right away, with black pepper to taste.
