Warm Cauliflower Salad

Sharing is caring!

A cauliflower salad in a lemon, caper and herb dressing that is best served warm.

This salad is normally served warm, but is just as delicious at room temperature.  It’s simple to make, just roast the cauliflower, make the dressing, introduce them to each other and voila!

Trends in food come and go but to me, the humble cauliflower has always been like the little black dress….always in style, and very adaptable.  I call it a warm salad, but it would also make a great vegetable side dish too.  Or you could just eat the whole thing yourself whilst the other half is out!

Cauliflower Salad 

This cauliflower salad is an easy dish and one that I will make when I am looking at a half empty fridge and have a hungry husband in the background.   It’s as simple as roasting the cauliflower, prepare another dish whilst this cooks (coughs politely, frittata, frittata), fix a green salad and then the cauliflower is ready.  Toss in the dressing and you have a feast on the table!

    I firmly believe one cannot have enough cauliflower recipes. I ADORE cauliflower, even if its smell is not the greatest while it cooks… 😉

    Yum. I love cauliflower.But I think it has a bad rep and is underrated by a lot of people. This recipe proves them wrong!

      I could not agree with you more! I think a lot of people have had it in their childhood when it’s been boiled until there’s not flavour left!
