This is an absolutely delicious raw vegetable salad. The dressing compliments the broccoli & cauliflower without being overbearing. The garnish adds just the right combination of flavors to make this a 'go-to-recipe' for any BBQ, picnic or potluck dinner you need something out-of-the-ordinary for!

Note: If you aren't a cauliflower fan, this recipe works just beautiful with broccoli alone.
