"'MY GRANDPARENTS tended a big garden and grew and canned all their own vegetables. Grandma always had the ingredients on hand for this salad, and I think she was happy to have a recipe that she could make well ahead when planning that big Easter dinner.'"
In a large bowl, combine cauliflower, onion, all of the beans, pickles and carrots. In a medium saucepan, bring remaining ingredients to a boil. Boil for 2 minutes, stirring occasionally. Pour over vegetables; stir gently. Cover and chill overnight. Stir again; drain before serving.
