A Cauliflower/Pepper/Carrot/Green Bean Recipe Everyone Will Eat


This is one of my favorite vegetable recipes.  It can be made ahead, it is loaded with vegetables and it can be a great side dish or delicious snack.  The vegetable proportions and items can vary depending on your preference (or what you have in the house).



  • 1 1/2 cups apple cider vinegar
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 2 Tablespoons sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon black peppercorns
  • 1/2 teaspoon each of mustard seeds and dried dill
  • 2 bay leaves
Bring the above dressing ingredients to a boil and then simmer for 3 minutes. Carefully pour the dressing into a large, heavy duty zip-top plastic bag that is filled with the following vegetables:

  • 4 cups small cauliflower florets
  • 1 cup julienne (small strips) cut carrot
  • 1 cup julienne cut red pepper
  • 1 cup green beans, trimmed and cut in half
  • 2 Tablespoons sliced scallion
  • 3/4 teaspoon chopped garlic or 4 garlic cloves halved
Seal the bag well.  Refrigerate 8 hours or overnight, turning occasionally.  Serve with a slotted spoon.  Keeps for at least a week.

Stay healthy & well,
