Delicious hearty salad. I love the mint with the beets. I've had this recipe ripped out and saved since 2005 and never made it. Glad I found it! I agree with the previous review in that I would decrease the shallot since it is now all I can taste. Also, I was heavy handed on the olive oil, vinegar and lemon juice.
The dressing was more of a salad on its own, sitting like a roof atop the beets and cauliflower. Its flavor was heavy on the shallot side. I won't be making it again, but if I did, I'd cut the shallot in half and add some olive oil, red wine vinegar, and lemon juice to thin out the dressing; or maybe just some water.
