Cauliflower With Lime and Hot Pepper Vinaigrette

READY IN: 13mins
Recipe by Hey Jude

This delicious side dish has just a hint of heat from the red pepper flakes. If you like the flavors of lime, vinegar, red pepper, garlic and cilantro, you better make a double batch of this because it's addictive and goes fast. I found this in a friend's heart healthy cookbook, I think the author was Dr. Dean Ornish, and adapted it to our own tastes.

DELICIOUS!!! The lime brings out the nuanced flavor of each ingredient. The dish almost takes on a Mediterranean flavor due to the cumin. So easy to make and super inexpensive. This is sure to be a crowd pleaser and I will definitely be sharing this recipe. Thanks Hey Jude!
