Broccoli and Cauliflower Salad with Capers in Lemon Vinaigrette

A quick and easy salad, perfect for the warmer weather or if you’re looking for a different way to make broccoli.

This lemon vinaigrette makes any vegetable taste delicious. I love it over carrots, or even over arugula or a grilled chicken salad. You can add more lemon juice if you like a tangier taste.
