Cauliflower Tabbouleh (Grain Free)

Cauliflower tabbouleh is a grain free version of the classic tabbouleh salad. It is typically served as part of a mezze (metzea) appetizer assortment, and it can be perfect in the summer as a side or a vegetarian main course. The parsley, mint and lemon combination make this dish refreshing and invigorating.
