With summer fast approaching, we look forward to a bonanza of fresh vegetables. There's nothing like a large bowl of fresh veggies to perk up a summer meal. This is one of our favorites.


  • 3 cups cauliflowerets
  • 3 cups broccoli florets
  • 2 medium carrots, thinly sliced
  • 1 medium zucchini, quartered and thinly sliced
  • 1 small red onion, julienned
  • 3/4 cup cider vinegar
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt, optional
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • Sunflower kernels, optional


  1. In a bowl, combine the cauliflower, broccoli, carrots, zucchini and onion; set aside. In a saucepan over medium heat, bring vinegar, sugar and salt if desired to a boil. Remove from the heat; stir in oil. Pour over vegetables and toss to coat. Cover and refrigerate overnight. Just before serving, sprinkle with sunflower kernels if desired.
