    Roasted Cauliflower With Blue Cheese Dressing

    Cauliflower roasted in big chunks is delicious and the quick blue cheese vinaigrette makes it special. Try it as a side dish for steak.


    • 1 large head cauliflower, leaves trimmed
    • 2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil, plus 1 tablespoon, divided
    • 1/8 teaspoon salt, plus 1/4 teaspoon, divided
    • 2 tablespooons crumbled blue cheese
    • 1 tablespoon white-wine vinegar
    • 1 tablespoons water
    • 1 tablespoon minced scallion greens
    • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper


    Step 1
    Position rack in lower third of oven; preheat to 450°F. Coat a large rimmed baking sheet with cooking spray.
    Step 2
    Cut cauliflower into quarters. Remove any extra woody core from the ends, but keep the quarters intact. Brush with 2 teaspoons oil and sprinkle with 1/8 teaspoon salt. Place cut-side down on the prepared baking sheet.
    Step 3
    Roast the cauliflower for 15 minutes. Turn so the opposite cut sides are down. Continue roasting until tender, 15 to 20 minutes more.
    Step 4
    Meanwhile, combine the remaining 1 tablespoon oil, the remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt, blue cheese, vinegar, water, scallion greens and pepper in a small bowl. Serve the roasted cauliflower drizzled with the vinaigrette.
