What actually makes this Sensational Cajun Chicken Salad Cajun? It’s the Grilled Blackened Cajun Chicken Breasts but beyond that, I’ve used the kind of old-fashioned but always good Sensational Salad Dressing (it has Romano cheese in it) that hails from Baton Rouge, Louisiana. While a salad like this isn’t the traditional way to use the dressing, that dressing does make this salad sensational!
I can’t think of any recipe I’ve made recently that’s given me as much angst as Mashed Cauliflower. See, I love cauliflower. Cooked almost any way and raw, too. And I love my One Pot Mash in the Pan Instant Pot Cauliflower Rice. So when I started hearing about Mashed Cauliflower as a lower carb alternative to Mashed Potatoes I just knew I would love it! I jumped on it. And I hated it. It wasn’t until I started combining the Mashed Cauliflower with Parmesan cheese for Parmesan Mashed Cauliflower that I began to like it.
So I always wonder how the winter is going for everyone – we’re going to be up to 58 tomorrow (and this in December in Minnesota) but I’m bummed because it’s supposed to rain. But it was supposed to snow, so we’re lucky for this heatwave. Then we’re down to a more seasonal 15 degrees by the end of the week. It seems the perfect time to tuck into some comfort, like this Cauliflower Au Gratin.
Are you looking for a super-fast, super easy no hassle and no mess way to make Cauliflower Rice? Do you have an Instant Pot? Well, then this one is for you, an easy one-pot mash in the pan Instant Pot Cauliflower Rice. I’ve always loved cauliflower, so it stands to reason it was no huge hardship to start subbing in cauliflower rice for plain old rice in some of my meals. I like it plain, especially with Indian Food, like my Easy Shrimp in Curry Sauce pictured here and cauliflower rice is fantastic with a little Parmesan tossed in. I can actually eat cauliflower rice just as is, for a meal. Maybe with a touch of butter.
If you follow me (and if you don’t, I’d love it if you would, by email, on facebook or pinterest) you’re going to think I’ve gone a little Cauliflower Cray Cray! And I have! I recently made “Essential Oven Roasted Cauliflower” and then I made Cauliflower with Dates & Pine Nuts. Now, here’s Smoky Cauliflower Hummus.
