Roasted Cauliflower Salad Tips
  • To cut down on your prep time, you can use the shredding attachment of a food processor or a mandolin to shred your veggies.
  • However, a sharp knife and a cutting board work just as well, although it may take a bit longer.
  • For those who like a little heat, add in some sliced peppers, red chili flakes or a dash of hot sauce.
