Roasted Cauliflower Salad. A recipe rewind, because some things are too good to miss!

Welcome to Our Sunday Café, we are pleased you stopped by for a visit. Today we are offering another delicious recipe from our kitchen. We hope you enjoy it as much as we did…

Recipe rewind, because in the beginning there is a blogger who has no readers. She still posts great food in hopes that the readers will come..........y

Roasted Cauliflower Salad
adapted from:
400-degree oven

see below for a cooks wisdom

1 head of cauliflower
1 onion
2 - 3 T olive oil
juice of 1/2 lemon
1 clove garlic minced
11/4 t seasoning salt
2 t dried Italian herb blend
1 t sugar (help promote caramelizing in a short roasting time)
2 slices of bacon, cooked until done but not crisp, then minced fine
fresh ground pepper to taste

Break the cauliflower into florets, cut in half if very large. Cut onion into 1-inch chunks.

Combine remaining ingredients in a large bowl, add vegetables and toss to coat well.

Prepare a baking sheet with a thin film of oil. Spread vegetables out evenly. Roast for 25 - 30 minutes, a bit caramelized, but not soft.

Serve hot or as desired. For a salad, presentation garnish the side of the plate with a slice of tomato, black or kalamata olives and small golden Peperoncini's.

a cooks wisdom:  increase the bacon to 3 pieces, sugar to 2 teaspoons, increase oven temperature to 425 degrees.

I will definitely return to the cauliflower link, for more great cauliflower recipes.

  2. I love cauliflower! I always look for new recipes for it! Thanks for sharing, i love the idea of recipe rewind!

  3. another new thing rewinds,, I love cauliflower, my husband,,, not so much, I'll love this ,, sounds yummy,,

  4. Roasting vegetables adds another dimension huh? Hopefully not the twilight zone sort of dimension. This sounds delish.

  5. This sounds wonderful I love my favorite~

  6. That was definitely too good not to rewind. I love roasted veggies but our place is small and Don is so sensitive to "kitchen stink", as he calls

  7. it's a great idea to rewind. it's sad that alot of my favourite recipes have never been seen by other people, because when i first started blogging (i'm still quite new though), no one read my blog!

    btw, love roasted cauliflower! recently also tried roast broccoli! i think roasting really brings out a great dimension to veggies!

  8. I love cauliflower too, and I love to roast it. I also love to fry it, coated in panko, but roasted is healthier!

  9. I have always loved cauliflower and this recipe sounds delicious. I must try it!

  10. We love cauliflower! This looks delicious, will have to give this a try! Thanks for sharing!

  12. Hi Melynda,

Green Bean Cobbler, AKA "the other green bean casserole"

Welcome to Our Sunday Café, we are pleased you stopped by for a visit. Today we are offering another delicious recipe from our kitchen. We hope you enjoy it as much as we did…
This green bean casserole is very good and a perfect way to enjoy those green beans put away in the freezer from last years garden. Of course, it is just as delicious with green beans bought from the grocery store. It is also nothing like the more famous holiday green bean casserole, this one is not too salty or processed, it is fresh and delicious! 
Green beans, sour cream, cheddar cheese, and a crunchy topping, what is not to like? The author suggests that this casserole is made with either garlic or onions. And I think she is correct, both might overpower the sour cream covering the green beans. This first time I will make it with garlic and the next time will be with onions.....

Southern Green Beans

Welcome to Our Sunday Café, we are pleased you stopped by for a visit. Today we are offering another delicious recipe from our kitchen. We hope you enjoy it as much as we did…
Green beans are in our freezer for use this winter. Having grown in our garden this summer. I have never been a big fan of green beans, until growing our own. There is something satisfying about cooking what you grow. There is a lot we have learned about growing what you will cook.....

We were successful with green beans last year and again this year. However, we did not grow the same beans this year. This year we grew tri-colored beans. They are beautiful as well as tasty. You will see that once cooked, magically the beans are all the same color.

Taco Pickles

Welcome to Our Sunday Café, we are pleased you stopped by for a visit. Today we are offering another delicious recipe from our kitchen. We hope you enjoy it as much as we did…
When I eat Tex-Mex, I enjoy a spicy, vinegary condiment on my food. And when we have fish for dinner, I want something with a bit of a bite to it, to add some excitement. Fish can be a bit tame on that dinner plate. You could also tuck a spoonful of this crispy, spicy, sweet and puckery delight in a sandwich or anywhere else a spicy flavor is desired!

For this recipe we used carrots stored in our root cellar from last fall, I think we can call the root cellar project a success!
