cauliflower - roman Romanesco Salad
(RAW or a steam....)
This was inspired by a thought of a pasta salad or a couscous salad but we didn't want to cook with the grains. So you can use your Romanesco cauliflower as the main ingredient!
Begin by pulling off the small florets from the cauliflower.  Either lightly steam or prepare RAW.  ( a simple quick boil for this dish or GREAT RAW!! )
add 20 or so Sliced kalamata olives
Small amount of chopped capers (1 tablespoon per 4 cups florets ...)
Chopped onion: Green onions, red onions, shallots, whatever you've got.
S & P to taste, Lemon juice, freshly squeezed,
Olive oil:  use a light hand
Fresh herb: I use basil, parsley, cilantro... Chopped. 
You can top your salad with toasted sunflower seeds or another nut might also be delicious.
