"A broccoli salad recipe I played with. Printed in First magazine, June 1998. You could also substitute broccoflower for the romanesco. References online describe the romanesco as looking like a cross between a wedding cake and a star fish! Similar to cauliflower and cooked in much the same way, but it has a nuttier flavor. Do give it a try! It's a shame to have to chop the romanesco up for this recipe! Another way to serve it is to steam the romanesco whole with just the lower stalk cut off and florets left intact. Talk about a presentation! Add a drizzle of lemon juice or butter; sprinkle of salt and pepper. Oh yes!"

"Wow! I made this for a book club potluck, everyone loved it. The tangy Asian dressing is awesome. I am part of a sustainable agriculture co-op (really recommend) so I was able to substitute sweet baby broccoli for the cauliflower and add an indigo carrot- yes, they are purple- and the colors were fantastic. Thank you!"
"Love the colors and taste especially the ginger in the dressing! DH liked this a lot more than salads marinated in Italian dressing. This was easy to downsize for the two of us. Made as posted except I use black instead of white pepper. Thank you Cookgirl for sharing a wonderful make ahead recipe. Made for Vegetarian/Vegan Recipe Swap-recipenapped it."
