Roasted Cauliflower with Parsley and an Orange juice-Vanilla dressing

Photograph Roasted Cauliflower salad with Vanilla-Orange dressing by Alessio Fangano on 500px


Roasted cauliflower is at its hype at the moment, but it is indeed a really versatile and deeply satisfying way of eating this creamy white vegetable.
By roasting it, you concentrate its natural sweetness enriching it with delicate earthy notes of caramelized bits.
In my Sicilianity, I couldn't help myself but dress it using fresh squeezed orange juice and a little garlic for that needed pungency. A strew of freshly chopped parsley can only enrich this salad with its deep grassy notes.
