    I think next time I’ll try to improvise my own salsa, as mine tasted distinctly like Tostitos. I like the grated cauliflower idea, since we get a ton from our CSA and I can only make so much stir fry and curry dishes...  -  23 Jul 2018  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Easy to make. I did use a food processor which made it very easy! The salsa and green onions gave the cauliflower a nice distinct but not overwhelming flavor. The texture of the cauliflower was very good.  -  18 Jan 2018  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I used a food processor to rice the cauliflower. Added no salt or pepper. The salsa and green onions were perfect! Thanks for the great EASY recipe.  -  24 Aug 2017  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
