Roasted cauliflower is a popular side dish in our home. Leftovers can be reheated, served cold with a vinaigrette, or added to a green salad.
Our most recent discovery: Add some blue cheese dressing and toothpicks, and serve them with wine and beer.
This recipe is from Chef Adrianne Calvo, of Chef Adrianne’s Vineyard Restaurant and Wine Bar in Miami.
Note about the cauliflower: While you only use the florets in this recipe, the stems and the core are equally delicious.
Save them to chop into green salads, or steam/boil and purée.

For a low-calorie version, substitute Greek yogurt for the mayonnaise.
We were also happy when we substituted this blue cheese dip and dressing recipe.
