Cauliflower Tuna Salad

Roasted cauliflower, Herbes de Provence, tuna, and black olives. One could say this is a French-inspired tuna salad, to say the least!

If you love roasted cauliflower and Niçoise salad then this cauliflower tuna salad is for you! I love to eat it à la minute, aka right after its been prepared, but this salad also tastes great later or even the next day as all the herby flavours start to infuse into the other ingredients.

Allergy Friendly Herbs & Spices

I’ve never been very concerned about the origin of my herbs and spices, which is probably quite naive of me. In Europe, they have to label allergens and have may contain statements, but this isn’t always the case when it comes to buying something artisanal, which I learnt the hard way a few weeks ago.

We have a cute spice stand at the market that I have been buying from for the last 5 years. I always assumed they were safe. Well, the other day as I was sprinkling some chilli flakes into the pot I noticed a weird shape. That shape was a sesame seed! I truly believe I have shape radar for my allergens and can spot a sesame from a mile away. Not only was there one sesame there were multiple sesame seeds! After dumping out the whole bag I spotted at least 5. Needless to say, I was 100% freaked out and have been a little weird about dried spices and herb mixes since.

Now that fall is around the corner and the abundance of fresh herbs will slowly decline I am mustering up the courage/detective skills to find some safe dried herbs and spice mixes. I hope to find a good one here in Germany!

Honestly, I was never one to call a company about their manufacturing process, but after this scare that has changed. I must admit I have contacted Gin companies in the past… lol

Cauliflower Tuna Salad

Herbes de Provence Cauliflower Tuna Salad

One of my favourite herb mixes is Herbes de Provence. It reminds me of the first time I went to France as a tween because we bought bags of the stuff as presents and the smell brings me back to the quaint cobblestone streets. Now I use Rodelle Herbs De Provence Seasoning and have spoken directly to them about their manufacturing process (they do have sesame in some of the products). So at least I know I have one safe thing to use, the question is can one have too much Herbes de Provence?
