For a refreshing and delicious "salad", try this tonight. You won't be sorry. The colors. The flavor. The aroma. Healthy AND beautiful.
Cavolfiore Insalata ala Fioretti
One head of cauliflower, steamed
One head of broccoflower, steamed
One or two roasted red peppers (jarred is fine), cut into thin strips
2 cloves of fresh garlic, each cut in half
the juice of 1/2 fresh lemon
olive oil (about 1/4 cup)
fresh herbs, finely chopped (if you have them on hand)
kosher salt & freshly ground black pepper
While you're steaming the vegetables, cut the peppers into thin strips. Place them in a bowl with the garlic and squeeze in the fresh lemon juice. Add the olive oil, herbs, salt & pepper. Mix together and let the flavors mingle. The garlic will nicely flavor the dressing without overpowering. Arrange the cauliflower and broccoflower on a platter. Drizzle the pepper strips and dressing onto the hot vegetables, sprinkle with a little more salt & pepper to taste, if you like. Allow to cool to room temperature. Serve.
Ciao for now,
