Steamed Cauliflower with Curry-Basil Vinaigrette

I’ll admit that I typically don’t like cauliflower, but this curry-basil vinaigrette from The Best Recipe adds a great flavor.  For me, it’s like adding paint to a plain white canvas.


1 Tbsp. red wine vinegar

1 Tbsp. lemon juice

1/2 shallot or scallion, minced

2 Tbsp. minced fresh dill

2 Tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil

salt and ground black pepper

1 recipe Steamed Cauliflower

1/2 c. walnuts, toasted and chopped

1. Whisk vinegar, lemon juice, mustard, shallot, dill, oil, and salt and pepper in a small bowl.

2. Steam cauliflower and then place it in a serving bowl.  Toss the dressing, cauliflower and walnuts, adjusting seasoning per your taste.  Serve warm or at room temperature.
