For the sauce, we use almond butter and coconut milk to create a creamy base with a nutty flavor. Before making the sauce, you’ll want to make sure these two ingredients are set at room temperature to allow for easy mixing. The added ground ginger will crank up the warmth and depth, while the fresh lime juice adds a zesty zip of tang.

To get started, blend the cauliflower florets in a food processor until they are finely crumbled. After about 10 to 15 seconds, you’ll notice the cauliflower roughly resembles the size of cooked quinoa – that’s the texture we’re looking for here. Transfer the cauliflower rice to a medium bowl and add in the remaining vegetables.

In a small bowl, whisk the sauce ingredients together until smooth. You can also make the sauce in a blender if you prefer a finer texture. Once combined, drizzle the sauce over the salad and gently toss to combine. Serve immediately or refrigerate leftovers in an airtight container for up to two days.
