Cauliflower & Dill Summer Salad

Growing up in Minnesota, my mom would make a cold wild rice & fresh dill salad on a hot summer day. Over the years I have changed her delicious recipe to fit my ketogenic lifestyle. Top this tasty salad with lemon pepper chicken, grilled steak, or shrimp for an easy high protein meal. It is dairy free and divine.  Enjoy!!
