Cauliflower with Fresh Herb Vinaigrette

Cauliflower with Herb Vinaigrette

Ok, I know it’s been a long while since I’ve added a new post. After an exciting month of the FIFA World Cup and other wonderful distractions these last couple of months, I admit I’ve been kind of lazy when it comes to cooking and I haven’t spent a whole lot of time in the kitchen…

But I’ve been thoroughly enjoying the summer!  I really can’t complain about the fabulous weather we’ve had this season. It’s been unusually warm and dry. And on a hot sunny day, this quick and easy cold appetizer is the perfect accompaniment to a meal.  Or, enjoy it on its own if you’re looking for something light and refreshing.
