Gluten Free Mexican "Rice" Salad

Anyone else LOVE riced cauliflower?  I am kind of obsessed with it these days!  I do so many things like making cauliflower tabouli, bacon and cheese cauliflower pancakes and even cauliflower pizza.  This is a new one for you to enjoy! It is gluten free, can be dairy free if you leave out the Cotija cheese, nut free, egg free, soy free, shellfish free and SUPER delicious.  Enjoy the recipe and share with your Pinterest friends.
