Cooking Instructions

Mix all the dressing ingredients and allow to stand for 1 hour.

Heat the oil in a cast-iron pot and char the cauliflower in batches, then place on a platter.

Add the celery, hazelnuts and parsley, and pour the dressing over just before serving.

Cook's note: Smoky cauliflower with nuts, dried fruit and celery is the perfect salad to serve with grilled fish, chicken or lamb.
