Cauliflower Salad with Cranberry, Orange and Pomegranate

What else can I say about this salad? It's doubly rich in vitamin C, thanks to cranberries and oranges, and doubly rich in antioxidants, thanks to cranberries and pomegranate.
By the way, cranberries have been found to contain polyphenols that nourish the good bacteria in the intestinal flora, which fight obesity and all of its accompanying diseases, such as type 2 diabetes. I'll tell you more about it another time.
But in the meantime, enjoy this easy-to-prepare, tart salad.
