Buffalo Cauliflower Bleu Cheese Wedge Salad

Buffalo Cauliflower Bleu Cheese Wedge Salad

What better way to elevate a fresh wedge salad than with buffalo cauliflower!  We have tried a number of buffalo-ing recipes and finally settled on our own.  The hot sauce adds a punch, so be wary of everyone’s tolerance for heat, and optionally it can be added pre-roast with the cornstarch, coconut oil, and garlic toss.  For the dressing, we love the chunky and creamy Trader Joe’s bleu cheese dressing, and Ken’s Reserve Bleu Cheese is an old, yet hard to find, favorite as well.
