Well, I just marinated it. Packed it in tupperware for chill time. Here is the recipe:
* 1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
* 6 tablespoons Dijon mustard
* 1 cup canola oil
* 1 large head of cauliflower, cut into 1-inch florets (about 6 cups)
* 2 cups Kalamata olives, pitted, halved
* 1 1/2 cups chopped celery
* 1 bunch green onions, chopped
* 1/4 cup chopped fresh Italian parsley
* 16 cups arugula (about 10 ounces)
Whisk vinegar and mustard in small bowl; gradually whisk in oil. Season dressing generously with salt and pepper. Combine cauliflower, olives, and celery in large bowl. Add 3/4 cup dressing; toss to coat. Cover salad and remaining dressing separately; chill overnight.
Mix green onions and parsley into salad. Arrange arugula on platter; drizzle with remaining dressing. Top arugula with cauliflower mixture. Sprinkle with pepper.
My version, well I only used half a cup of oil and about half of the vinegar it called for. For some reason it did not feel as if I had 6 cups of cauliflower, but it also seemed that the dressing was just too much. I did not want my cauliflower drowning in dressing. I know its a marinade, so I will just have to wait and see. Also used a cup of celery and 2/3 of the called for olives.
Since last week, I feel low with my possibilities of cooking good food. But I am continuing and hopefully renewing myself!
I still feel as if the recipe needs something a bit more, like chili flakes. But I will wait, and see how it comes out tomorrow.
So I just took it to my superbowl party. Before I left the house i put the parsely and the onions in it. I did half a bunch of onions and it seemed fine. I feel as if I did not have 6 cups of cauliflower, but I never weighted it either. When I got to the party I mixed it with arugula. I liked the end product. People ate the salad but it was not a crowd favorite, I could tell. My mother suggested next time I cook the cauliflower to get a sweeter taste. So maybe next time I will do that. Anyways, I think overall its a solid recipe. I like vinegar things and liked this. But everyone is different. So tinker away for the best recipe, I most definitely will next time I try this one.
