ROASTED CAULIFLOWER SALAD

roasted cauliflower salad | designlovefest

i buy at least one cauliflower a week from the grocery store or farmers market. i always have lofty plans of attempting to make the fried cauliflower from the Jerusalem cookbook but i end up taking the easy way out and roasting it in a cast iron pan because it’s so delicious and easy. i think the secret to a good roasted cauliflower is to keep cooking it and when you think it’s done cook it some more. i wash mine, slice it and place it in a pan with some olive oil and garlic salt and pepper. i generally roast it for about 45 minutes – an hour (or more if needed!) at 425. taking it out and stirring it just a couple of times during the cook time. i also like it with a little hot chili oil and red pepper flakes on top for some spice.

we decided to make roasted cauliflower salad today and i’m really happy with how it turned out. the sweetness of the maple bacon and the freshness of the mint were a killer combo. give it a try or make your own version and tell us how it goes! – joanie

• preheat oven to 425. next cut your cauliflower into pieces, put in roasting pan and top with 2 tablespoons olive oil, salt and pepper. mix together and put in oven, should take about 45 minutes to cook. 5 minutes before it’s done roasting, take it out and add the currants, mix and return to the oven to finish.

• while the cauliflower is in there you can add the bacon to start cooking in the oven on another rack, place foil on the pan, place bacon on top and cook for about 10-15 minutes or until crispy. you can also cook on the stove top. remove and break into pieces, set aside.

• while everything is cooking chop the mint and shallots.

• to assemble add everything in a bowl, top with the pesto and fresh black pepper and serve warm!

, love the fit on this!

i consider to be an excellent place to shop for everyday basics and also wardrobe stables with a twist. soft sweaters, well cut denim, plaids, tweeds, etc. from time to time they do discounts like 30% off (almost) everything on the site. and right now is one of those times, so stock up for fall and winter! i love their t-shirts, especially for layering, they have some really great sweaters and i think their fall colors are really right this season. the slightly cream tinted winter white, their navy blue and the pinks and greens are really working. everything i’ve included is part of the sale (except the checkered cape but that was just too good to leave out!). this isn’t sponsored but i use this styled column to share online shopping finds and sales that i’d share with friends/sister and mom. – joanie

WEEKEND AT HOME / 84

lately i’m really crushing on green. there’s something so pretty and natural about it like bringing a bit of the forest indoors. , it looks so pretty mixed with pink. deep green can be a bit bold, but these interiors are really inspiring me to add a touch of green to my space. even if you’re a little shy about designing with green something as simple as a leafy green palm plant can make a big pop of color in a space. a few favorite color combinations to go with this deep forest green are white, pink, and gold. what do you think of this foresty hue? –
