This is my take on Middle Eastern Tabbouleh.  Rather than bulger wheat, I use cauliflower.   This dish is fresh, healthy mouthwatering and absolutely delicious.  Cauliflower is a descendant of wild cabbage.  The perfect cauliflower head is a creamy white color with no brown spots. Pick the cauliflower that is heavy in weight compared to its size. The leaves should be a brilliant green.  Cauliflower is nothing but cabbage with a college education.
