PUBLISHED ON: 02.23.2013

Food is for celebrating…….

The Orthodox Jewish Community celebrates Sukkot, a Judaism version of Thanksgiving, celebrating life, community and the season’s bounty, with a seven-day festival.

During this celebration it is considered a good deed (Mitzvah) to open your home to guests.  One of the typical salads served, is this simple cauliflower salad.  A delicious briny mix of cauliflower, roasted red bell peppers, kalamata olives, scallions and lemon juice.  With a few fresh minced herbs such as oregano and marjoram and you have a salad that can serve a crowd.
