1 Head medium (5-6" dia.) Cauliflower
1 Lb Broccoli
1 3/4 Cup chopped Carrots
1 Cup Peas
1/4 Cup Parsley
1/3 Cup Caesar Dressing
1/3 Cup Sour Cream
1/4 Cup Dijon Mustard
1 Tbsp Mustard
1/2 Tbsp Honey
2 Tsp, ground Tarragon
1 Tsp Celery Seed
1/4 Tsp Pepper
18 Oz Tuna


Fill a large pot 2/3rd full with generously salted water and bring to a boil.

Prepare an ice bath in a large bowl with ice and water and a colander in your sink or over a large bowl.

Once the water is boiling, plunge the cauliflower in, cover and when it returns to a boil, time for two minutes.

Remove the cauliflower to an ice bath using a spider strainer.

Leave the flame on high and bring the water back to a boil.

Plunge the broccoli in, cover and time one minute after the water returns to a boil.

While the broccoli is cooking, remove cauliflower from the ice bath into a strainer.

Then place broccoli into same ice bath (add more ice if needed to keep the water extremely cold).

Bring the water back to a boil and plunge carrots in.

Cover and time one to two minutes depending on how thick you cut your carrots.

While carrots are cooking, remove broccoli from ice bath to strainer with cauliflower.

When carrots are done, remove to the ice bath.

Drop in frozen peas and remove immediately to the ice bath.

Strain the carrots and peas and pour into colander to drain with the other two vegetables.

Remove water from the heat and discard.

Let the four vegetables drain very well.

To further dry, roll the broccoli and cauliflower in paper towels to remove any last moisture trapped.

Transfer vegetables to a large mixing bowl.

In a medium bowl, mix the remaining ingredients and add to the large bowl with the vegetables.

Gently mix to combine.

The flavors of this dish improve if stored overnight, however it can be served right after preparing.
