This Curry Cauliflower Salad is loaded with digestive health benefits and is one of my favorite recipes to date! The flavors and ingredients work so well together and this salad is super quick and easy to make. My favorite ingredients in this dish are cauliflower, curry powder, and greek yogurt due to their digestive health benefits!
Cauliflower has a number of health benefits and is really easy to add to your diet. This vegetable is full of fiber, vitamins, and antioxidants. It’s high fiber and water content is great for alleviating constipation–which is always a win for me. Cauliflower also has anti-inflammatory properties that can help fight against gastrointestinal diseases and cancer.
This salad has the most amazing curry vinaigrette, which perfects the flavor and adds even more health advantages. Curry powder also contains anti-inflammatory properties and many other spices that aid in digestion and soothe your stomach: black pepper, bay leaves, cumin, cinnamon, and coriander.
In addition to adding tang, plain greek yogurt is packed with probiotics, which add good bacteria to your gut and help with regularity. Greek yogurt is also a great source of protein, vitamins, and amino acids!
I hope you and your gut enjoy this flavorful salad and I would love to hear your feedback in the comments!
