Changing it up

The warmer weather affects my "food mood".  I want to eat lighter.  I want to try new things.  I want to get out of the winter food rut.  (what I REALLY want right now is for the true spring weather to get here already!)

Cauliflower is great.  I love the versatility of it...so many choices!  And as many of you know, I love variety.  What's your favorite way to make it?

I had planned on roasting it, but decided instead to make this salad and steer away from our basic lettuce version that we usually have.  A nice change of pace.  New food mood! :)

Caulifower & Green Bean Salad
1 pound green beans, ends trimmed
1/2 head cauliflower, broken into pieces
1/2 cup sliced radishes
1 scallion, chopped
1/2 cup kalamata olives
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
salt and pepper
1/2 teaspoon oregano

Combine all ingredients in a bowl and mix together.  Serve cold or at room temperature.

I feel the eating lighter mentality. My body is wishing the spring weather to come and bring it out of hiberation mode!

I love cauliflower. My wife dislikes it. Guess what I don't make very much of? lol. But your salad is beautiful and looks delicious, and I stare at the photos with great longing.
