Cauliflower-and-Broccoflower Salad with Sherry Vinaigrette

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.

Cooking Light DECEMBER 2000

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

  • 1 garlic clove, chopped
  • Salad:
  • 2 cups small cauliflower florets
  • 2 cups small broccoflower florets
  • 2 cups trimmed watercress (about 1 bunch)
  • 1/2 cup diced celery
  • 1/2 cup chopped green bell pepper
  • 1/2 cup sliced green olives
  • 1/2 cup chopped seeded cucumber
  • 1/4 cup sliced green onions
