I just love cauliflower and arugula, but never knew how to put them together. I had several attempts and finally came up with this salad. It's a fusion of citrusy and sweet that explodes in your mouth. This is a perfect appetizer if you are serving roasted chicken or seafood.

Made this tonight for dinner and I loved the infusion of the flavors. I personally loved the fresh garlic in there but my kids couldn't take it. May be if making it for children reduce/remove the garlic. Cauliflower and Arugula are my favorite vegetables so pairing them together was a win-win for me! Will be making this again! Read More
