Our Keto Halloumi Cauliflower Couscous Salad recipe makes a tasty warm vegetarian lunch or low carb side dish. It’s tangy and full of fresh, delicious flavors.

Couscous is not a low carb item, but lucky for us, cauliflower is the queen of vegetables and when riced, makes a great low carb substitute for couscous. This salad is loosely based on a dish that was on the menu at an award-winning Australian winery where I worked as a chef many years ago and includes my favorite Middle Eastern condiment – Macadamia Dukkah.
