Ashley, this is a really yummy looking twist on fixing cauliflower . I love how lime juice just makes everything taste fresh and bright.
This is some tasty looking cauliflower. I bet this would make the perfect side to a barbeque dinner.
I don’t care for cilantro, would it taste ok without it or sub with something else?
I made this tonight. It was great. The lime and cilantro gave it really good flavor. I may try it without the garlic next time.
