Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Bring a large pot of water to boil and add the cauliflower and carrots. Let cook for 2-3 minutes, add the broccoli. Cook an additional 2 minutes until vegetables are crisp tender.
  2. Drain the vegetables without rinsing.
  3. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Add the spices and let sizzle for a second or two before adding the steamed vegetables and red onion. Let cook just a minute or two until the spices are distributed and the onions have started to wilt.
  4. Toss in the vinegar and lemon zest and transfer the salad to a serving bowl. Allow the salad to stand for 10 minutes before serving.

I love the flavors in this. I made it early in the day and let it chill to go along with bison kabobs and Jasmine rice. I was out of red onion and replaced it with green onion (spring onions) because I thought that the yellows would be too strong. My only complaint about this salad is that there isn't enough dressing mix. I made 2 servings and was measuring in 1/8ths and 1/4's of a teaspoon. As the veggies I used were frozen I just defrosted them and mixed the dressing in a 1 ounce portion cup (with everything mixed is was about 1/4 of an ounce) and poured it on the salad veggies and let them chill most of the day. Thanks Toni for a lovely side dish. Made for Photo Tag.

I tought this dish was loaded with flavor. I made step 3 last about 30 seconds, not another two minutes. I think you'll enjoy this a lot more if the vegetables remain crisp and colorful. Use minimal cooking throughout the process. Excellent and tastes great cold, straight from the frig for lunch the next day.
