Recipe Ingredients for Parmesan Cauliflower and Parsley Salad

1 tsp grated fresh lemon zest
2 tbsp fresh lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
4 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
6 oz white mushrooms, thinly sliced
4 cups fresh parsley (flat leaf leaves)

1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon black pepper
1 lb cauliflower florets
