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.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Place a rimmed baking sheet on the middle oven rack. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Combine cauliflower and broccoli in a large bowl. Add 2 tablespoons oil, 1/4 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.

  • Meanwhile, whisk vinegar, mustard, honey and the remaining 2 tablespoons oil and 1/4 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.
