This colorful toss combines cauliflower and black and green olives with sweet peppers and red onion for a satisfying blend of flavors. The lemony vinaigrette coats the salad well and gives it a pleasing tartness. -Nancy Holland, Morgan Hill, California

"I mae this salad several years ago whenit cae out in a Christmas issue of Taste of Home and we all loved and I lost it and just found it again on your website, I made it for athanksgiving potluck, every one loved it,and called the next day for the recipe. The only thing I changed was I didnt use sugar in the dressing because it didnt keep as well. The peppers broke down faster wih the sugar in it. Its a great winter salad,crunchy and delicious."
