Cooking Instructions

First, chop your cauliflower into -inch (1.

3-cm) chunks.

Throw it in a microwaveable casserole dish with a lid, add a couple of tablespoons of water, cover, and cook it on high for 7 minutes.

While that's cooking, assemble the celery, pepper, onion, chilies, cheese, and chicken in a big mixing bowl.

As soon as the microwave beeps, pull out your cauliflower, uncover it, and drain it.

Let it sit and cool for a few minutes, though?you don't want to melt your cheese.

While you're waiting for the cauliflower to cool, combine the mayonnaise, cumin, chili powder, oregano, vinegar, and lime juice in a bowl.

Stir everything together.

Okay, when the cauliflower has cooled a bit, dump it in with the chicken, cheese, and veggies and stir everything to mix.

Dump in the olives, pour on the mayonnaise mixture, and toss to coat.

You can eat this right away, if you like, or chill it for a few hours.

This is nice served on a bed of lettuce, but you could serve it stuffed into tomatoes, too.
