Tried this recipe tonight for supper. I par-cooked the broccoli and cauliflower together in the microwave for 2 min. then plunged into an ice bath to stop the cooking process (simply because I prefer these veggies tender-crisp rather then raw). I also added some chopped baby bok choy greens because I had them in the fridge. Used a store bought lemon-poppy seed dressing and then chilled the salad for a couple of hours before serving. It was delicious and we both had seconds.
This was such a great colorful salad with such a delicious flavor. I didn't add the mushrooms because I couldn't find mine. I know I bought them but they weren't in my fridge. Another item left at the grocery store counter. I also used red peppers and orange peppers, don't care for the green ones. I was skeptical with all that sugar but it turned into a delicious salad. In the morning when plating it I just used a slotted spoon. Had it with some boiled eggs and some leftover cold cuts. Was a perfect lunch. Thanks for sharing Lori Mama. Made for Holiday Tag '09
DELICIOUS. I usually don't like fresh mushrooms in a salad but once they soak up the dressing YUM. I cut back on the recipe to use up partial heads of broc and cauliflower . What an awesome way to use them up.I skipped th green pepper we don't care for it. I did not drain the dressing. Made for Everyday is a Holiday tag KEEPER recipe
