Cumin-Marinated Cauliflower and Carrot Salad

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Sydney Mike

Here's a salad inspired by the flavors of Moroccan cooking! The original recipe was found in the 2000 Pillsbury Classic, Farmer's Market Cookbook. Cooking & preparation does not include the 3 hours needed in the refrigerator to marinate!

Loved it! The carrots were cooked about 2 minutes prior to adding in the cauliflower and both vegetables were crisp tender. The salad was made in the morning and then at dinner time were ready. This made for an easy side served with Recipe #430897.
