Recipe

It can be hard to eat salads in the winter, at least for me. All I want to reach for is rich, warm foods that stick to your ribs. I blame evolution. My body hasn’t caught up to modern technology and wants to pack on the pounds to survive the winter cold. That must why lately I just want to eat cookies and hot chocolate for dinner, right?

Anyway what this means is that I need my salads to be extra tasty and a bit special this time of year, and today’s salad is just that. The cauliflower is roasted until just tender with za’atar, a Middle Eastern spice blend made with thyme and sesame. Then the whole salad is dressed with a delicious, easy dressing made with tahini (sesame paste) and honey. Delicious and special enough for a holiday dinner.
