When the weather is warm, I love enjoying meals outside. Cauliflower Greek Salad is the perfect accompaniment to grilled meats! The brine of olives and feta cheese cuts through the rich sizzle of crispy and juicy chicken. So so so delicious!

I truthfully can’t say anymore. Go grill some meat, so you can enjoy it with this fabulous cauliflower salad!

For red meat carnivores, skirt steak is a great contrast. Follow this link for information and a simple recipe.

If you like lamb, Smoked Rack of Lamb is wonderfully delicious with salad!
