    Kumquat the Cat's friend's Note:

    Submitted for Zaar World Tour 2005. This salad is offered in place of the ubiquitous chips and salsa at Casa del Sol in the Mexcan border town of Juarez. It looks like a Mexican version of gardiniera to me! I reduced the olive oil by 1/2 cup. Can be stored in sealed container in refrigerator for one week. Chill time is included in cook time. From a special issue of Saveur, The Best of Tex-Mex Cooking. Have not made yet. I judgmentally put this in the kosher category too.

      I live in El Paso, and have eaten at Casa del Sol from the night it opened until it closed, was the best restuarant in Juarez. I have never had cauliflower in their escabeche, also the jalapenos were sliced and the seeds were left. It was served in bowl with tortilla chips along with the salsa. You could make a meal off the escabeche and salsa if you weren't careful.
