Kick up the freshness factor of a summer salad by using cauliflower rice (cauliflower florets that have been finely chopped in a food processor) instead of grains. This cauliflower rice salad is also a great way to showcase the rainbow-hued cauliflower available at farmers markets this time of year. In the photo above, you’ll see how it looks using classic white cauliflower. In the video below, we used purple.
