Recipes–Cauliflower Salad With Capers, Basil, And Vietnamese Fish Sauce

Cauliflower can be delicious if prepared with the right sauce – a sauce which complements but does not overpower the vegetable.  This recipe does the trick, and the combination of a light mayo-yoghurt mix highlighted with Dijon-style mustard and Vietnamese fish sauce, and garnished with fresh basil and capers is perfect.

Cauliflower Salad With Capers, Basil, Vietnamese Fish Sauce
* 1 medium head cauliflower, trimmed

* 1 lg. Tbsp. small capers
* 5 lg. leaves fresh basil, chopped into thirds
* 1 lg. spring parsley, chopped
* 2 tsp. sugar (approx.)

- Mix the mayo, mustard, fish sauce, capers in mixing bowl

- Taste, and add sugar if needed; adjust other ingredients

- Pour mixture evenly over cauliflower
