This is wonderful with fish or grilled chicken.
The longer this sits in the refrigerator the better it gets.

NOTE:
If you cannot find Famous Dave’s you can use any bread and butter pickle juice.

1
Once you saved enough of the juice from the pickles “ I freeze it till I know I have enough” put the juice into a large soup pot and set aside.

Pull the carrots and green beans out to defrost, you won't need to par cook these.
3
In a separate pot put enough water in the pot so you can par-boil the cauliflower and broccoli.
4
While you are waiting for the water to come to a rolling boil “you won’t need to salt the water “cut the heads off the cauliflower and broccoli.
5
Get 2 large bowl’s of ice water to stop the cooking. Once the water is boiling, cook the cauliflower, for no more than 30 -45 seconds, remove and put into the ice water to stop the cooking.
6
Then next do the broccoli for about 20 – 30 seconds and remove from the water and put in a separate ice water bath.

Get the pickle juice warm “not hot “by simmering on the stove. Once it starts to simmer turn off the stove.
