Marinated Broccoli-Cauliflower Salad

My mother made this for a family gathering several years ago, and I've been serving it ever since. Everyone enjoys this well-dressed salad.

    Very easy to make and a big hit. My teen-age children ate it! I added green peppers, cucumbers and carrots, as well and they blended in very nicely. I did not marinade overnight, just about 4-6 hours durring the day and it was great. Thanks. I look forward to this summer when the garden vegetables come in.

    A good quick veggie salad to assemble.
