Cauliflower, Sweet Peppers And Blood Oranges

Mediterranean Diet Recipes: Cauliflower with Blood Oranges

Cauliflower, Sweet Peppers And Blood Oranges


Sometimes when I’m in the produce aisle, certain fruits and vegetables just “call to me.” Yesterday it was the call of cauliflower and blood oranges. A quick web search revealed a technique for roasting cauliflower with olive oil and blood oranges. And, that’s where it all began for this recipe creation. I decided that this beautiful spring day was deserving of plenty of vibrancy. So, I also roasted up yellow peppers and red onion with the cauliflower. For a final zap of springtime brightness, I added slices of blood orange and a garnish of chopped cucumber and blood orange zest.

Lucky me, I was working from home. This dish was savored on the screened in porch with sun shining through the window and a light breeze.

We hope you’ll enjoy this cross between a side vegetable and a salad. Perhaps we should call this dish Happy Spring Salad!
