    • 1 head cauliflower (2 to 2 1/2 pounds, NO brown spots!)
    • 1/4 cup capers, drained (reserve 1 tablespoon marinade)


    • 1/4 cup vegetable stock
    • 2 tablespoons olive oil
    • 1 tablespoon caper marinade
    • 1 tablespoon white wine vinegar (or tarragon vinegar)
    • 2 tablespoons fresh basil, finely chopped
    • 2 tablespoons fresh Italian parsley, finely chopped
    • 2 tablespoons fresh garlic chives, finely chopped (can substitute green scallion tops)
    • 1 large garlic clove, finely minced (for milder flavor, substitute elephant garlic)
    • salt & freshly ground black pepper, to taste


    1. 1
      In a small non-reactive bowl combine the dressing ingredients and whisk well.

      I loved this--especially with the minor changes I made (LOL). I used sherry vinegar, more garlic and basil, no parsley but I did add scallion tops. I also added just the tiniest hit of dried hot pepper flakes. Absolutely delicious! Thanks, CG!
