We really (really) liked this boss tried to steal little bit of leftovers I brought for lunch. I did cut the celery back just a tad, but it was still crunchy and so very flavorful. Do you think there are other veggies that would hold up as well as the cauliflower? Thanks for a wonderful and cool summer salad.

I honestly didn't really care for this recipe all that much, but I must admit, since it is essentially a compilation of a lot of ingredient I don't particularly care for, I have to give it some credit. After the night I served it, it actually spent a long while in the fridge with no one eating much of it until I finally ended up throwing the left overs away. I won't make this again.

The combination of vegetables was really good. Next time, I will sub balsamic or wine vinegar for the part of the lemon juice, as it was way too lemony for me. I also cut back on the celery when I reached the, "gee, that's a lot of celery!" point. I probably cut the celery back by 1/3. I will make it again, but will add garlic and some kind of fresh herb.
