The quick pickled raisins are the true star of this shaved cauliflower arugula salad. Because the cauliflower is raw, the salad is fresh and super crunchy with scallions and pistachios.


  • 1/4 cup raisins
  • 3 tablespoons champagne vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 head cauliflower, trimmed and broken into florets
  • 2 ounces baby arugula
  • 3 scallions, thinly sliced
  • 1/4 cup roughly chopped pistachios


  1. Place the raisins and vinegar in a small bowl. Let stand for 10 minutes. Spoon out the raisins and set aside.
  2. Whisk the olive oil, salt and pepper into the remaining vinegar.
  3. Use a mandolin to thinly slice the cauliflower florets and place in a large bowl. Toss in the arugula, scallions, pistachios and raisins.
  4. Drizzle the vinaigrette over the salad before serving.
