1 head cauliflower
2 seeded cucumbers, skin intact

Combine all vegetables in a large mixing bowl.  Generously drizzle olive oil over vegetables, about ¼ cup.  Mix well.  Season with 1 teaspoon salt, ½ teaspoon pepper, 1 teaspoon granulated or powdered garlic, 2 teaspoons dried oregano.  Toss to evenly distribute seasonings.  Splash about 2 tablespoons red wine or cider vinegar over veggies and mix well.  You can keep in the refrigerator for a day or two before your party, the vegetables will marinate.
