Local and Fresh—
Cauliflower


       White, orange, purple or green, cauliflower is a versatile veggie for entrees, side dishes, soups and salads. While all the colors grow in the familiar round shape, romanescu cauliflower produces a very unusual shape in a lime green color. There is no substantial difference in taste between any of the colors and shapes.
       While this month’s issue focuses on cooked cauliflower, just-picked cauliflower is delicious raw, with a sweetness and crunch that makes it perfect in salads. Whether used as part of a larger vegetable medley or featured solo with a dressing, this crunchy cruciferous veggie brings flavor and nutrition to any meal.
       Look for heavy heads with fresh green leaves and flawless curds. Store loosely wrapped in the refrigerator until ready to use.
