It has been crazy hot for the last several days. If I could get away with ice cream for every meal I would. So as an alternative, there is this Olive Bar Salad. It has only one cooked ingredient. That would be the brown rice. I made a double batch the other night for dinner. So today when I put this salad together, I just took everything out of the fridge.
I love potato salad. You know the kind with a creamy dressing and a little zing from some mustard. But, I am trying to cut some of the starchy carbs in my life. Isn’t everyone? I also love raw cauliflower dipped in ranch dressing. I love it almost as much as Pringles. I could sit and eat cauliflower dipped in ranch dressing until I need to be carted off in a wheelbarrow. So, here is a salad that merges the good things from both. This Creamy Cauliflower Salad has the flavors and dressing from my favorite potato salad, but not the potatoes. It has cauliflower instead. You know what? You are not going to miss the potatoes one bit. Nope, really.
Our cousins came to visit this past weekend. Well really Andrea is the accidental cowboy’s second cousin. But let’s not split hairs. I now consider Andrea and her husband both my cousins. Andrea is an extraordinary baker and cook. It was such a delight to cook with her while they were here. We, well, mainly she made this amazing salad. Why so amazing? It is so good it could possibly replace Pringles. A little salty, tangy and crunchy. Just like Pringles but healthy! Just vegetables and this really yummy dressing. I call it Andrea’s Confetti Salad because it is full of all these bits of color.
