Cooking Instructions

Run the cauliflower through the food processor using the shredding blade, put it in a microwaveable casserole dish, add a couple of tablespoons (30 ml) of water, cover the dish, and cook it on high for just 5 minutes.

While that's cooking, put the olives, scallions, spinach, celery, tomato, and parsley in a large salad bowl.

When the cauliflower comes out of the microwave, dump it in a strainer and run cold water over it for a moment or two to cool it.

(You can let the cauliflower cool uncovered instead, but it will take longer.

) Drain the cauliflower well and dump it in with all the other vegetables.

Add the oil, garlic, vinegar, and mayonnaise and toss.

Add salt and pepper to taste, toss again, and serve.
