That sounds like a good salad, but there's too many ingredients in the dressing. I don't keep cider vinegar or yogurt because I don't like them much.

After starting this I just noticed there's an alternative dressing, but the first one looks really good.

Have you seen Runs for Cookies Cauliflower and Broccoli salad recipe? She puts it in pita bread, but I didn't have any, and just ate it like a salad. I really liked it. I ate it almost every day for a week, and then got sick of it. :-)
