We have teamed up with some incredible bloggers to give you some amazing allergen friendly BBQ recipes. We were invited by Nutritionally Nicole's Allergy Free Summer BBQ challenge and we can't be more excited.  This is what we are bringing to the BBQ.  

Mexican "Riced" Cauliflower 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. Its the perfect Summer BBQ side dish and you will love it! 

Its free from gluten, nuts, soy, eggs, shellfish and can easily be dairy free as well and it's SUPER delicious.  Enjoy the recipe and share with your Pinterest friends.
