Girard's Greek Roasted Cauliflower

Like most condiments, I like to make my own, and have some bottled ones in the pantry. Girard's Premium Salad Dressings are perfect for quick sides and salads - and did you know you can use them in some hot dishes as well?

I like Girard's Premium Dressings as they have a wide array of flavours and styles and they come in pretty glass bottles that I like to keep for my homemade hot sauces and such. The new lines are now lower in salt and sugars, making them a little more figure-friendly without sacrificing flavour.

Try their Greek Roasted Cauliflower for a perfect September side on a busy night!

Serves: 6
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 20 minutes     

Roasting cauliflower brings out its flavor and makes it the perfect base for this dish, which also includes Kalamata olives, roasted red peppers and Girard’s® Greek Feta Vinaigrette Dressing.
1/3 cup Girard’s® Greek Feta Vinaigrette Dressing
1 large head cauliflower, broken into 2” pieces
2 tablespoons olive oil
Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
1/2 cup diced or sliced roasted red pepper (packed in water, drained and chopped)
2 tablespoons pitted and sliced Kalamata olives
2 tablespoons chopped parsley

Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Transfer cauliflower pieces to a baking tray. Add olive oil and toss together to cover pieces with oil and season with salt and pepper. Roast for 17 to 20 minutes, shaking the pan halfway into the roasting time. Cauliflower should be tender and slightly caramelized.

Transfer cauliflower to a serving bowl; add remaining ingredients and pour Girard’s® Greek Feta Vinaigrette Dressing over all. Serve.
