Pickled Veggie Salad with Mustard Dressing

Are you a lover or a hater of pickled veggie salads? The earthy, sweet-yet-tart zing of pickled beets and other cold weather vegetables like cauliflower is loved by many, though admittedly not all. If you’re on the love-it side of this fence, pick up some pickled beets and stone-ground mustard from The Pickled Chef, and plate up a healthy, beautifully flavorful winter salad. The infusion of vitamins, minerals, and deliciousness is good for you! Try adding some pickled cauliflower too.
