Cauliflower Bowl

I’ve always loved @zoeskitchen cauliflower bowls. Unfortunately, or fortunately for my budget, there are no Zoe’s close to me. Thankfully the bowls are pretty simple to throw together.

Broccoli Apple Salad

This salad tho ????????. It’s a combo of broccoli, apple chunks, roasted pepitas, toasted pecans, red onions and my Apple cider vinegarette. Yummm!! Normally this type of salad is made with a mayo based dressing, but I love this vinegarette instead. I love the tang, plus so healthy…
