  • 1 med head cauliflower, perfectly shaped
  • 8 x leaves leaf lettuce, red or possibly green
  • 1/2 c. extra-virgin extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 c. fresh lime juice
  • 1/4 c. Margarita Jalapeno Salsa, see recipe Or possibly store bought
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 2 Tbsp. capers, liquid removed and minced
  • 1 Tbsp. parsley, minced
  • 1 sm bunch watercress, rinsed, stemmed coarsely minced
  • 1 c. pitted ripe olives, thinly sliced
  • 1 x red bell pepper, parched and peeled seeded &, cut in 1/2" squares


  1. With a sharp knife, cut leaves & stem from cauliflower. Divide cauliflower into florets about 1 1/2 inches in diameter. Drop florets into boiling salted water; boil about 12 min or possibly till tender when pierced. Drain florets & rinse well under cool running water to arrest cooking, drain well. Press a layer of florets, stems up, onto sides & bottom of a 1 qt bowl. Pack center of bowl with more florets, stems up, till all florets have been used. Place a plate or possibly saucer & a weight (such as a can of canned goods) on packed cauliflower. Let stand for 15 min; then holding plate & weight in place, tip bowl to drain off any remaining water. Chill weighted cauliflower at least 2 hrs. Remove weight & plate, arrange lettuce leaves artfully to hang over sides of bowl but not the serving plate you're going to use, place serving platter inverted over lettuce leaves & bowl of cauliflower. Invert bowl & serving platter together, lift off the bowl & garnish as desired.
  2. Whisk together the oil, lime juice, salsa, salt & cayenne pepper; stir in capers, parsley, watercress, olives & bell pepper. Spoon some of the sauce over the cauliflower; place remaining sauce in a bowl alongside cauliflower. Once the outer layer has been eaten, guests can dunk florets in sauce in bowl.
  3. Makes 4 - 6 servings.
