Orange and Cauliflower salad

It is the season for Cauliflower and Oranges! We have been getting these two items in our vegetable box from the farm and I have been trying to find creative ways of using them. I prefer to eat cauliflower raw, so I like to eat it in salads. I made this salad the other day and it turned out yummy!

1 head of romaine lettuce
1/2 avocado
1 orange, peeled and cut
1 cup of shredded cauliflower
1/2 cup fresh basil 
1/4 cup parsley
1/4 cup pumpkin seeds
1/3 purple onion

Feel free to double some of the ingredients, but this is how I made it and it turned out great.

For the dressing, I used a simple balsamic, salt and olive oil vinaigrette. (3tbsp, a pinch and 1-2 tbsp).

En francais:

1 laitue romaine
1/2 avocat
1 orange, pelee et coupee
1 tasse de choux-fleur couple fin
1/2 tasse de basilic frais hache
1/4 tasse de persil hache
1/4 tasse de graines de courge
1/3 d'onion violet, coupe en lamelles

servir avec un vinaigrette balsamique.
