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.
