Cauliflower in Sundrenched Days

This is one simplest recipe and great for potluck. It doesn't cost much and everyone loves finger food and delicious vegetables with lots flavors and endless conversation.  Although Kraft stopped producing Sun Dried Tomato Dressing, you can use any oil-based salad dressings. The blanching technique is to keep cauliflower crunchy and retain the vitamins without over-boiling it.
Most of salad dressings can be used as marinate

1 head Fresh Cauliflower
8 oz Oil-based Dressing (half bottle)
3 qt boiling water 
4 qt iced cold water

  1. Cut cauliflower into bite sizes.
  2. Rinse well.
  3. Bring a pot of water to boil, enough water to cover the entire head of cauliflower.
  4. Dunk the vegetable and cover.
  5. Remove from heat and soak for 10 minutes.
  6. Drain and remove the vegetable immediately. 
  7. Dunk them into the iced cold water.
  8. Once the vegetable is cooled to room temperature, remove from cold water and drain well.
  9. Pour salad dressing into the bowl. Toss cauliflower pieces until they are evenly coated. 
  10. Ready to serve.
