Mildly Marinated Cauliflower

Mildly Marinated Cauliflower is the best marinated cauliflower I have ever had. Children will love it and don't hesitate to add it to salads.

  • 1 head of cauliflower, broken into florets
  • ½ cup white wine vinegar
  • 2 cups water
  • 2 tablespoons coconut sugar - you can also use date sugar
  • 2 teaspoons salt


  • Put the flowerettes into a steamer and steam 15 minutes.
  • Mix the white wine vinegar, date or coconut sugar, water and salt in a bowl and stir well.
  • The sugar granules will not dissolve.
  • It is not a sweet marinade. The sugar just cuts the vinegar.
  • Place the cooked cauliflower in a dish that has a cover.
  • Pour the marinade over the cauliflower and cover.
  • Put in the refrigerator and marinate overnight or at least 8 hours.
