Cauliflower Rice Salad

Cauliflower is the newest super food as it is rich in fiber, potassium, vitamins C & K,  and (believe it or not) protein.  On top of all that goodness, cauliflower is low in carbohydrates and calories.

Cook and crumble it, and you end up with a version of rice.

Now that is good stuff!
