Cauliflower Taco Salad

Dinner, Lunch

If you love Mexican food like I do, then you will love this Cauliflower Taco Salad.  I roasted my cauliflower florets in some tasty Mexican seasoning, and added them to my sautéed onions and peppers.  I served mine on a bed of quinoa and romaine lettuce.  This dish was full of flavor, and it had a nice kick to it.  I topped the salad off with a tasty, basil dressing.  Share this with your fellow foodies.
