Three Note Salad

OC isn't just another pretty face. He's a scientist. He's a trumpet player. He's my hero. And he's an outstanding cook. For dinner the other evening he created his own salad. We were given the tangerines by one of my co-workers. They grew on the tree in her front yard.

He -- being descriptive and accurate -- wanted to name this salad, Broccoli, Cauliflower & Tangerine Salad (in fact, that ampersand might be just a little too racy for his public persona). Me, being much more imaginative, named it in honor of his musical interests: Three Note Salad (and I can do that and get away with it because this is my blog).

He served this salad with Oyster Chicken and wild rice. For dressing we splashed on a bit of teriyaki sauce. It was heavenly. In fact, I may never eat tangerines again without teriyaki sauce!

Now, I bet you're wondering how to make the salad? Well, just wash, chop and toss together equal amounts of raw broccoli, cauliflower and tangerine slices. Chill and serve. Super EASY, yet fancy and elegant in appearance.

We discussed the possibility of tossing a few sliced almonds over the top next time we serve it. If you try that before we do, let us know how it went.
