This is sooo good! For a slightly different twist, you could also drizzle with red wine vinegar or lemon juice.

    Made this as one of our side dishes foe a baked ham. It was wonderful! I didn't think that 1 1/2 cups of broccoli & cauliflower would be enough, so I increased the recipe (I wanted leftovers!!) to 1 1/2 pounds of each veggie and increased all other ingredients accordingly. DH & I loved it....DS is not a cauliflower fan, but agreed that it was quite good. (The only change I will make next time is to mince the garlic so that it will distribute better during tossing.) Yes, there were leftovers (big grin), some of which I had tonight as a cold salad with some bleu cheese dressing mixed in...wow, was that good too! Thanks for posting such a versatile recipe, equally good hot or cold!

    Wow, cooked this for a total of 27 people Thursday Evening at an organization that I belong to. I cook one meal a month for them. This was awesome. Made it precisely according to recipe and it was simply devine. I used Crushed Walnuts because our grocery store did not carry pine nuts, but this was perfect just the way it was written. Thanks Tasty and very refreshing. Chef Angela Marie

    My family liked this, my husband the most, but I was afraid that perhaps there might have been a typo for the quantities of broccoli and cauliflower. 1-1/2 cups is not very much so I just added (a lot) more of each. Perhaps it was meant to say 1-1/2 lbs. of each?

    I loved this recipe as it was a nice change from plain old broccoli and cauliflower. The rest of my family thought there was to much garlic (if that is possible). I also used almonds instead of pine nuts and will make this again.
