"The tradition of Italian cooking is that of the matriarch. This is the cooking of grandma. She didn't waste time thinking too much about the celery. She got the best celery she could and then she dealt with it."--Mario Batali
1 head cauliflower, cut into bite size pieces 1 bunch broccoli, cut into bite size pieces 1 can ripe olives, sliced 1 (20 oz.) pkg. frozen petite peas 1 can sliced water chestnuts 5-6 green onions, chopped
1 c. mayonnaise 1 c. sour cream 1 pkg. Good Season's cheese-garlic dressing mix
Combine all ingredients at least 3-4 hours ahead or the night before. Keeps well.
My mom says this amount of dressing is too much so she reserves some for another smaller salad or adds more vegetables if she can use a larger salad.
