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.
12 CUPS CAULIFLOWER OR BROCCOLI FLORETS, OR COMBINATION OF THE TWO
3 tbsp olive oil
2 tsp kosher salt
4 OZ THICK CUT BACON
1/2 CUP MAYONNAISE
2 tsp HONEY
2 tbsp red wine vinegar
KOSHER SALT AND FRESHLY GROUND PEPPER
1/4 CUP CURRANTS
1/4 RED ONION, THINLY SLICED
When ready to cook, set the temperature to 325℉ and preheat, lid closed for 15 minutes.
Place the cauliflower or broccoli florets in a large mixing bowl. Drizzle with the olive oil, sprinkle with salt and toss to evenly coat.
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.
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.
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.
Stir in the roasted vegetables, then the currants and the sliced red onion. Sprinkle in the bacon, reserving a little for topping.
Taste, ensuring there is enough seasoning. Enjoy!
