Cauliflower, Anchovy and Olive salad

READY IN: 33mins
Recipe by JustJanS

I make this salad for work functions, sometimes using half cauli and half broccoli. It's ok to make the day before too. Don't tell anyone about the anchovies and they won't notice!

This salad is not for the faint-hearted -- it's sour, bitter, crunchy, fishy and the parsley will get stuck in your teeth. That said, I love it. These are my flavours. If you like all the ingredients, you will love this salad. Otherwise, steer clear. I made two-thirds of a batch -- so a head of cauliflower -- and adjusted all the other ingredients accordingly. It makes a whole lot of dressing. I used only half and will save the remainder in the fridge for the next time or some other salad. Jan, thanks for throwing most of my favourite ingredients into one amazing dish! Yummo!
