I was always mesmerized when I would see the colorful heads of cauliflower at the market. Around the same time, the unicorn trend was taking over NYC (and the world!). But while unicorn lattes are a ton of fun, I wanted something that was a bit less reliant on crazy potions, and something that could serve as more of a real meal. The base of this salad is three different types of colored cauliflower, which all offer all the anti-inflammatory benefits of cauliflower, with additional antioxidants (purple contains anthocyanins, orange contains carotenoids).
While you can definitely eat this rainbow unicorn salad all year long, it's especially fun today to bring a bit of pride into your plate (here in New York, we're seeing rainbows all over the city, which is so heartening). I'm so happy to see pride being so universally embraced, and I'm hoping that, in the next generation, it won't be something people even think about, because being "different" will be the norm.
