    Loved it! The carrots were cooked about 2 minutes prior to adding in the cauliflower and both vegetables were crisp tender. The salad was made in the morning and then at dinner time were ready. This made for an easy side served with Recipe #430897.

    Normally, I can't stand carrots that have been cooked at all. However, with this dressing, and just lightly blanched, I thought they were wonderful. The cumin and lemon really complement the natural sweetness of the carrots. Unfortunately, I can't say the same for the cauliflower. It was perfectly cooked, but I didn't think the flavors married terribly well. I'll save this one to use again with just the carrots!

    I'm not leaving any stars. This just didn't work for us. We love all the ingredients but for some reason it just wasn't happening. I made as posted. Thanks for letting us try your recipe. :)
