Dairy-free, gluten-free, vegan, vegetarian and, most importantly, absolutely delicious. These fresh cauliflower rice salad jars make a great grab-and-go lunch for balmy summer days. Fill a jar the night before and simply pop in your bag to take to work.  

  1. To make the cauliflower rice, put the cauliflower florets in a food processor, along with the mint, spring onion, lime zest, a generous pinch of salt and some black pepper. Pulse until you have a rice-like consistency, then transfer to a bowl and wipe the food processor clean.
  2. To make the dressing, put the diced mango, sweet chilli sauce, grated ginger and lime juice in the food processor and blend until the mixture resembles a smooth dressing.
  3. To assemble the salads, divide the dressing between 4 medium-sized clean jars with lids. Add the chickpeas, pepper, cauliflower rice, radishes, pumpkin seeds and, finally, the rocket. 
  4. Secure the lids and keep the salad jars chilled until needed. They will keep in the fridge for up to 24 hrs. Before eating, give the jar a gentle shake to distribute the dressing, or toss if you are serving in bowls.
