If youíd like a delicious way to get more cancer-fighting cruciferous veggies into your diet, this heavenly salad with steamed cauliflower and hard-cooked eggs napped in a tangy olive oil and mustard vinaigrette is the answer to your prayer!

INGREDIENTS

3 hard-boiled eggs, peeled and coarsely chopped
2 shallots, finely chopped
2 tablespoons capers, well-drained

Vinaigrette

3 tablespoons hazelnut oil
3 tablespoon white wine vinegar

Salt and freshly-ground black pepper, to taste

2. Place cauliflower in a large salad bowl, add eggs, shallots, and capers, and toss gently to combine.
