A wonderfully fresh raw salad that can be made in almost any season. Other herbs could be substituted for the parsley, other greens for the collards (although collards keep their shape very well), etc. Cooked beans, lentils and/or grains could be added for extra bulk to make a more complete meal.
Inspired by the Raw Veggie Salad in Ottolenghi's "Plenty More." —chocolatea

In This Recipe
Make dressing: Whisk together lemon juice, lemon zest, vinegar, oil, shallot, mustard, salt and pepper in a small bowl.
Toss together cauliflower florets, sliced radishes, sliced collard greens, parsley, peas (if frozen can be left frozen, they'll defrost in a few minutes), and capers in a large bowl.
Add dressing to vegetables and toss thoroughly. Taste for additional salt, pepper or vinegar. Best if it sits for an hour or so before eating. Keeps well for a few days in refrigerator.
