    Hey Jude's Note:

    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.

    1. 1
      Blanch the cauliflower in the boiling water and then plunge into ice cold water to stop the cooking process, then drain well.
    2. 2
      Heat the lime juice, vinegar and red pepper flakes over low heat for just a few minutes, to soften the pepper flakes; don't boil it.
    3. 3
      Pour lime juice mixture over the cauliflower then add the garlic, cumin and cilantro and toss well.
    4. 4
      Let marinate in fridge or at room temp for 1 hour before serving.

      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!

      Can't believe that this recipe is not reviewed yet. I made it last night and the flavor is great. I made this as our salad but before it could marinate I had consumed half of it. I made this only with half a small cauliflower. The salt is not mentioned here but I added salt along with cumin.
