The warmer weather affects my “food mood”. I want to eat lighter. I want to try new things. I want to get out of the winter food rut. (what I REALLY want right now is for the true spring weather to get here already!)
Cauliflower is great. I love the versatility of it…so many choices! And as many of you know, I love variety. What’s your favorite way to make it?
I had planned on roasting it, but decided instead to make this salad and steer away from our basic lettuce version that we usually have. A nice change of pace. New food mood! 🙂
