Recipe Description
There were many Sunday afternoon lunches spent at the table in my grandmother's home. I remember distinctly upon entering the house being hit by the welcoming odor of lamb roasting and cauliflower boiling, mixed with the soothing smells of old books and freshly polished furniture. The menu was for the most part always the same, lamb, string beans, and a cold salad of cooked cauliflower with a caper vinaigrette salad. We all loved the meal and no one ever asked for a change.

Serves Tool

Serves To:USMetric
1/4 Cup(c)  capers
3/4 Cup(c)  vinegar
2 Quart(q)  water
2 Tablespoon(T)  salt
2   small cauliflower heads
1 Cup(c)  olive oil
1 Teaspoon(t)  sugar
1/2 Teaspoon(t)  pepper, ground
2 Tablespoon(T)  salt
1/2 Teaspoon(t)  powdered mustard
3/4 Cup(c)  vinegar


In a mixing bowl blend the vinegar, powdered mustard, salt, pepper and sugar. Whisk in the olive oil. Add the capers and set aside. Wash the cauliflower and break into branches. Discard the hard stem. Add the salt to the water and bring to a rolling boil. Add the vinegar and the cauliflower. Boil for about 5 minutes, just enough to cook them somewhat so that they are still crisp to the bite. Drain, cover and chill in the refrigerator. When ready to serve, divide the chilled, cooked cauliflower florets onto salad plates and spoon over the dressing with capers.

Additional notes

Tip: Don't overcook the cauliflower. You may want to steam it rather than boil it. There should be a bite left to the texture.
