Broccoli & Cauliflower Salad

1 Review
From:, November 2019

This festive holiday salad recipe features plenty of oven-roasted broccoli and cauliflower combined with massaged kale. Why massage the kale? It helps tenderize the leaves and infuses the sweet-tangy flavor of the dressing directly into the heart of this healthy winter salad.

  • 3 cups cauliflower florets
  • 3 cups broccoli florets
  • 4 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided
  • ½ teaspoon salt, divided
  • ¼ teaspoon ground pepper
  • 1 tablespoon champagne vinegar
  • 1½ teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • 8 cups chopped lacinato kale (from 1 large bunch)
  • ½ cup dried cherries
  • 1 cup shaved manchego cheese (about 2 ounces)
  • ⅓ cup chopped toasted pecans


  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Place a rimmed baking sheet on the middle oven rack. Preheat oven to 450°F. Combine cauliflower and broccoli in a large bowl. Add 2 tablespoons oil, ¼ teaspoon salt and pepper; toss well to coat. Spread on the preheated baking sheet and roast, turning once halfway through, until tender and golden brown, about 12 minutes. Let cool slightly.
  2. Meanwhile, whisk vinegar, mustard, honey and the remaining 2 tablespoons oil and ¼ teaspoon salt in a large bowl. Add kale and use your hands to massage the dressing into the leaves until they are softened, about 3 minutes. Add the roasted vegetables along with cherries, cheese and pecans; gently toss to combine.
