I think of cauliflower as queen of vegetables. One, because it’s one of my favorites. And second, because it is a super hero when it comes to delivering health. A member of the cruciferous vegetable family, cauliflower is filled with cancer fighting nutrients, fiber, vitamins and anti oxidants.
I have so many favorite cauliflower recipes; I love it in soups, I love it mashed and creamy, I love it curried, I love it roasted and I love it raw with a good dip.
This recipe combines the crunchiness of lightly steamed cauliflower with tangy roasted peppers in a light vinaigrette dressing. It is a simple, colorful and delicious salad that can take the center stage at any meal.

Place in a steamer basket and steam for 3-4 minutes
