Carnival Cauliflower Beehive
From Dorothy McNett's Recipe book at www.dorothymcnett.com. This beautiful vegetable presentation is made possible due to the colorful Carnival Cauliflower from the Salad Savoy Corporation, "Home of Color, Taste & Nutrition".
2-4 bunches assorted Carnival Cauliflower (green, white, purple and/or orange)
Wash and cut the cauliflower into small flowerettes. Using a glass or ceramic batter bowl, arrange the cauliflower by alternating the colors to fill the bowl. Cover with a glass or ceramic plate. Microwave on high for 8-12 minutes. (I used 12 minutes for a very full bowl.) Allow to stand a few minutes, and then with a measuring cup compress the vegetables a bit. Place a large plate over the top and invert. The vegetables will come out standing in the shape of a tower or "beehive". Set aside.
