For my 21st birthday


For my 21st birthday, one of my good friends gave me this little diary filled with recipes and menu ideas…and I’ve been waiting for the chance to finally use one of the recipes! This last weekend I finally got my chance, and made this warm wintery roast cauliflower salad. Roast cauliflower is delicious any way you choose to eat it, but this particular combination was perfect.
