This is such an original salad! Cauliflower is not consumed nearly enough; I think because in it's regular form the taste is not sufficiently appealing unless cooked in butter or other bad things. To grind it up and mix with homemade pesto is simply brilliant! My husband was stunned when I told him what he was eating. He thought it was a couscous salad. Thank you for sharing such an appealing and versatile dish.
