Raw Broccoli and Cauliflower Salad with Creamy Asian Dressing Redux
3 heaping cups broccoli florets
3 heaping cups cauliflower florets
1 small or 1/2 large red bell pepper, finely diced
1/3 cup currants, raisins or goji berries
Finely chop broccoli and cauliflower florets (using a chef's knife makes this really easy and fun). Transfer to a large bowl.
Add chopped bell pepper and currants, raisins or goji berries.
Dress to taste with creamy Asian dressing. (I used 1/2 of the 2 1/4 cups from the recipe. Save the rest for a Hugh Jass green salad!) Finish with a squeeze of lime.
