Cauliflower Salad with Olives and Capers Recipe

About: This recipe comes from Alice Waters' cookbook, The Art of Simple Food and, as it says there, makes an exciting salad for the middle of winter when more typical salad ingredients might be hard to find.

Cook Tip: For variations on this salad: leave out the capers and add 1/4 cup sliced radishes; or, instead of- or in addition to- parsley, try marjoram, basil or mint.
