Melissa’s Cauliflower Tabbouleh

Looking for a dish to take to your next cookout, family reunion, or get together this summer? I’ve got you covered. My friend Melissa made Cauliflower Tabbouleh this weekend for a cookout we had and it was a hit! I just had to have her share the recipe so I could share it with all of you!
