From the Kitchen of…Domenica Marchetti, Cooking Light ContributorFor Domenica, it isn't Thanksgiving without her mother's cauliflower with cured olives and capers. She updated the dish for a vibrant side salad.Make this salad a day ahead if you want the flavors to absorb into the cauliflower a little more. Just hold off on adding the cheese until right before serving.
