Irene’s Winter Salad

http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes/lemony_broccoli_cauliflower_salad.html

From EatingWell:  January/February 2011

Steamed broccoli and cauliflower florets tossed with a tangy lemon dressing is a great alternative to a green salad or steamed vegetable side dish.

6 servings, about 1 cup each | Active Time: 15 minutes | Total Time: 35 minutes

Ingredients

Preparation

  1. Place broccoli, cauliflower and water in a large microwave-safe bowl. Cover and cook on High until just tender, about 4 minutes. (Alternatively, steam over 1 inch boiling water in a large saucepan fitted with a steamer basket until just tender, about 4 minutes.) Drain.
  2. Mix lemon juice, oil, garlic powder, oregano, sugar and salt in another large bowl. Add the vegetables and toss to combine. Let marinate in the refrigerator, stirring once or twice, for 20 minutes.
  3. Stir in olives and tomatoes. Serve, drizzling with any dressing left in the bowl.
