Cauliflower Tabouleh Salad

I was grabbing a quick lunch from the Whole Foods salad bar a few weeks ago and they had a salad I hadn't seen before. It was a cauliflower tabouleh. I love trying their salads. One of my favorites is their kale and avocado salad. I wasn't too sure about this one, but I went with it and and grabbed some grilled chicken thighs to go with it. Then I sat down with a kombucha and dug in. And OH MY GOODNESS it was SO GOOD! So much flavor. I think it was all the fresh herbs, the parsley and mint, that gave it such a powerful and delicious flavor. So today, when I looked in my fridge and saw a bag of cauliflower rice, I decided I needed to make it. And if you're wondering what "cauliflower rice" is, it's just the lazy version of chopping up your own cauliflower. And I'll admit, I love it! It's so convenient. I'm always sautéing cauliflower rice to go with my dishes so I love having it on hand. You can find it in the produce section of most grocery stores with the other pre chopped and bagged vegetables.
