Cauliflower, Pomegranate and Pistachio Salad

Where did this recipe come from?
Ottolenghi Simple. I have many cookbooks from the latest health food guru to the traditional chef – my learning is that the best tasting food is almost always from the chef with a restaurant. Some of the latest fads may be healthy but generally lack flavour.  Recipes from good chefs almost always tastes great and their “Simple” or “5 ingredients” recipes work ; Jamie, Nigella, Slater, Ramsay.  Ottolenghi is my current favourite.
