Susie Jimenez: Seasonal salads are easy to make
With the change of season comes a change in seasonal produce. This salad recipe will help you continue to eat healthily while changing up the vegetables you consume.
Roasted Cauliflower salad
One head cauliflower, cut into large slices (it’s OK if it crumbles)
1/4 cup golden raisins
1/4 cup almonds, rough chop
4 garlic cloves, sliced
1 cup sprouts or shaved arugula
Line a sheet pan with foil. Drizzle a little bit of olive oil at the bottom then arrange cauliflower, almonds and garlic evenly. Place in a 400° oven for 18-20 minutes.
Plate cauliflower, almonds and garlic, then sprinkle golden raisins on top with sprouts. Drizzle with dressing and serve immediately.

3 tablespoons Dijon mustard
1 tablespoon whole-grain mustard
1/4 cup red wine vinegar
2 tablespoons honey
1 tablespoon chopped parsley
Salt and pepper to taste
Place all ingredients in a bowl and whisk until incorporated. Season with salt and pepper.
