Cauliflower-and-Broccoflower Salad with Sherry Vinaigrette

Cauliflower-and-Broccoflower Salad with Sherry Vinaigrette Recipe
Becky Luigart-Stayner
In the summer I make this salad with raw vegetables, but for a winter dinner, I prefer them lightly steamed. Also, healthful crucifers like cauliflower and broccoflower are in high season right now.


8 servings (serving size: 3/4 cup salad and 1 egg wedge)
