Roasted Cauliflower Salad with Lemon Herb Dressing
Pardon me while I take a moment away from the holiday cakes, cookies and cocktails to discuss a vegetable that hasn't been candied and topped with marshmallows. No worries, though, because there are plenty more caloric goodies coming your way before we all wake up on New Year's Day and realize there are only 6 short months till bathing suit season.
2 Cups cauliflower florets
2 Tablespoons olive oil
1 Tablespoon lemon juice
1 Teaspoon mayonnaise
1/2 Teaspoon mustard
1 Clove garlic, peeled and finely minced
2 Tablespoons chopped parsley
Salt & pepper to taste
Handful of Parmesan cheese, grated or in shards
Make the dressing by combining the olive oil, lemon juice, mayonnaise, mustard, parsley and garlic. Whisk well, add the roasted cauliflower, season and top with some shards of Parmesan cheese, if desired. Makes 2 servings.
