    Cauliflower Salad

    Raw cauliflower has great salad appeal, and many people prefer to eat it raw
    rather than cooked. This colorful salad mix, served on a bed of Boston
    lettuce, would go well with a grilled portabella mushroom entree or

    1 1/3 cups salad oil
    2/3 cup rice wine vinegar
    2 tablespoons sugar
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1/2 teaspoon basil
    1/4 teaspoon oregano
    1 clove garlic, minced
    3 cups cauliflower florets
    2 serranos or jalapeno chiles, seeds and stems removed, chopped
    3/4 cup pitted ripe olives, sliced
    3/4 cup chopped red bell pepper

    Combine the salad oil, vinegar, sugar, salt, basil, oregano, and garlic in a
    glass jar with a lid.
    Shake the mixture until the sugar is dissolved and set aside.

    Place the cauliflower and the serranos in a ceramic bowl.
    Shake the dressing again, pour it over the vegetables, toss lightly, cover,
    and refrigerate at least 2 hours or overnight.

    Before serving, add the olives, the bell pepper, and toss the mixture.

    Yield: 4 servings
