Warm cauliflower salad with almonds, pepitas + mustard-mayo dressing (gluten-free, dairy-free, vegetarian)

A quick, tasty vegetable side dish or snack. If you love cauliflower and haven’t tried Romanesco, a green heirloom cauliflower available at farmers’ markets and now at well-stocked grocers, you are in for a treat. Any prepared mustard (such as Dijon, yellow, hot and sweet, etc.) works with a dollop of mayonnaise to dress this warm salad.

Ingredients
  • cauliflower (Romanesco, yellow, purple, or white)
  • prepared mustard of choice
  • mayonnaise of choice
  • caraway seeds
  • ground turmeric
  • freshly ground pepper
  • slivered almonds
  • pepitas (pumpkin seeds)
Method
  1. Trim the cauliflower, separate into florets, and cut into bite-size pieces. Steam or microwave until soft. Transfer to a bowl.
  2. While still warm, toss the cauliflower with mustard and mayonnaise a tablespoon at a time until the cauliflower is dressed the way you like. Season with caraway seeds, turmeric, and pepper. Toss again, top with almonds and pepitas, and serve.
