Roasting cauliflower brings out its sweet, nutty flavor that pairs beautifully with hazelnuts and pomegranate seeds.
Sliced celery adds freshness and crunch.
Served on a bed of arugula and dressed with a delicious cinnamon and allspice dressing, this roasted cauliflower salad is hearty enough to be the main course and beautiful enough to serve to guests.
Don’t have pomegranate seeds? Substitute with raisins or dried cranberries.
