What's this?

Want to know the secret to a good salad? Just add smoky, wood-fired bacon to the mix. It’s what we’ve done with this roasted cauliflower & broccoli salad recipe.

Ingredients

  • 12 Cup Broccoli or Caluliflower Florets, Fresh

  • 3 Tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil

  • 2 Teaspoon kosher salt

  • 4 Ounce Bacon, sliced

  • 1/2 Cup mayonnaise

  • 2 Teaspoon honey

  • 2 Tablespoon red wine vinegar

  • Pinch salt

  • Pinch black pepper

  • 1/4 Cup Currants, dried

  • 1/4 Medium red onion, sliced

Steps

  • 1

    When ready to cook, set the temperature to 325℉ and preheat, lid closed for 15 minutes.
  • 2

    Place the cauliflower and broccoli florets in a large mixing bowl. Drizzle with the olive oil, sprinkle with salt and toss to evenly coat.
  • 3

    Place florets on a large baking sheet that will fit on the grill, then place on the grill and cover and roast until caramelized and crispy, about 25-35 minutes. Stir once during roasting. When cooked, remove and allow to cool for a few minutes.
  • 4

    Place the bacon directly on the grill grate next to the baking sheet with the broccoli and cook 15-20 minutes until crispy. Remove from the grill and crumble by hand or chop with a knife.
  • 5

    To make the Dressing: Whisk the mayonnaise with the honey. When combined, whisk in the red wine vinegar and taste, adding a generous pinch of salt and freshly ground pepper.
  • 6

    Stir in the roasted vegetables, then the currants and the sliced red onion. Sprinkle in the bacon, reserving a little for topping.
  • 7

    Taste, ensuring there is enough seasoning. Enjoy!
