A few weeks ago, I shared my recipe for Cauliflower, Tomato and Avocado Salad – which I really enjoy, because it’s a delicious non-lettuce-based salad, and sometimes I get bored with lettuce.

My friends know I like to eat healthy. So when they have parties, more often than not, I’m asked to bring a salad. It happened the other day, and it’s happening again this weekend. And you know what? They’ve come to the right guy!
