Warm Cauliflower Salad

If you've never tried warm salad, you need to try this!

Do you ever forget about your favorite dress, or a pair of earrings, or maybe your most comfortable pair of flats, only to rediscover and fall in love with it all over again? It happens to me quite often, and not just with clothing and accessories. This past weekend, I rediscovered how much I love cauliflower.

Growing up, my dad used to boil cauliflower florettes, put them into an egg wash, drench them in bread crumbs and then pan fry them: amazing. I’m not going to go as far as to say that mashed cauliflower would replace mashed potatoes for me, but it’s definitely a vegetable I enjoy.
