Crunchy and sweet Cauliflower Salad
I am always looking for low calorie dishes that are quick and easy. They also have to pass the husband test. This one did. Great to make ahead in a big bowl to have it all week. Add any other of your favorite ingredients, like cucumbers, hard boiled eggs, and nuts. This is one that you can be creative with. It is all about the sweet with the crunchy!
