Deep fried Cauliflower with Dill Pickle Aioli

Anthony Nicometi Jr


When I was little, we went on Vacation to Splash Lagoon water park, and in the restaurant, my mom ordered the Deep Fried Cauliflower. After I tried some of hers, I was Hooked! She started making it for me ever since. She served it with Ranch, But as I grew up, I tried different sauces, and this Dill Pickle Aioli works perfectly!

Its incredibly easy, Unbelievably tasty. And a Childhood favorite for me!

(I made this in Culinary class today...and I overcooked it a little bit, The color should be much lighter, Pardon my Mistake!)
