Cauliflower Zen SaladFrom the healthy food experts at Greenville, South Carolina-based Southern Pressed Juicery comes a bright and fresh dish that combines some of our favorite flavors: Zen Cauliflower Salad. We love incorporating ingredients from our gardens, and mint is starting to come up here in Charlottesville; plus, the raw sour cream adds a “guilty pleasure” aspect to the salad that’s much appreciated as we focus on lighter fare. A perfect dish for the winter-to-spring transition, it packs wonderful health benefits in each satisfying bite. Here’s how to make it at home:
