Buffalo Cauliflower Salad With Spicy Cilantro Ranch

Times are so crazy right now, and while we are all quarantine and eating pantry heavy food. Just wanted to post a salad that you might be able to whip up. You might already have these ingredients in your fridge. You can use frozen cauliflower if you need to, and can also sub a hot sauce you have on hand instead of the buffalo wing sauce. It’s a forgiving recipe so you can use any greens you have on hand. Hope you all stay safe and healthy! Let’s hope all this settles down soon. It’s a scary time for most and we need to remember that we are all in this together. To stay human and kind to others in this tough time.
