This Keto Cauliflower Rice, Bell Pepper, Parsley and Feta Salad is a versatile side dish that can be enjoyed either hot or cold!

You know how much I love cauliflower rice! This dish kind of reminds me of tabouleh salad. The riced cauliflower is really good at taking on the flavors it’s combined with and this salad tastes even more amazing the next day!

To be perfectly honest, I created this recipe as a hot side dish. It really tastes great warm. But I had put it away after photographing, and pulled it out a few hours later to eat with some steak. It was so much better cold! So stinking good! So if you are turned off by the idea of cold, cooked cauliflower rice, by all means, eat it warm!

I used a cheese grater to rice the cauliflower. I used to purchase the pre-riced cauliflower, but I have had a challenging time using it before it goes bad. It’s completely my fault, but YOU KNOW when the riced cauliflower goes bad, because it is stinky! You get a whiff every time you open the fridge.

So the cheese grater method doesn’t give you the even rice like the a food processor or the packaged stuff does, but it works just fine.

The whole reason I created this recipe is to try and get more fresh parsley into my diet. It seems like every time I open a magazine or listen to a podcast, someone mentions the benefits of fresh herbs, particularly flat leaf parsley. Dare I say, I’m starting to consider flat leaf parsley a superfood! It’s full of antioxidants, and vitamins K, C, and A.

For the cauliflower rice, I use the Instant Pot, because it comes out perfectly every single time for me. You can read more about how I do it in the Perfect Pressure Cooker Cauliflower Rice post. If you don’t have a pressure cooker, don’t fret, the rice can easily be made on the stovetop with a couple modifications, which are outlined in the recipe.
