Middle Eastern Crunch (Tumeric Pickled Cauliflower)

Recipe from: College Girl
Servings: 6 to 8

The Casbah in Lawrence, KS puts these in their house salad. This is my favorite burger joint EVER but, the pickled vegetables in the salad are so delicious they are freaky tasty. I had to buy the cookbook from the chef's Robert and Molly Krause. Because of their book, I want to start canning. :D "Pickles are a great way to use up a garden bounty and eat more vegetables. Beyond snacking, they taste great in salads, with dips or hummus, or atop a sandwich." — The Cook's Book of Intense Flavors
