Roasted Cauliflower & Chicory Farro Salad with Feta, Nuts and Lemon-Anchovy Dressing

I’m a big fan of sheet pan cooking, and winter is an excellent time to use the oven, even when making a warm heart-grain salad. At the same time, since I’m not totally keen on cleanup, I prefer to use as few pans as possible. This recipe is seemingly decadent, but requires only a tiny bit of attention and little cleanup!

I like the Treviso radicchio variety for this dish, but any chicory will work.

Ingredients

For the Lemon-Anchovy Dressing:
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 3 anchovy fillets
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • ¼ cup extra-virgin olive oil
For the salad:
  • 2 cups cauliflower florets
  • 1 medium red onion, chopped
  • 2 teaspoons fresh thyme leaves
  • 2 tablespoons fresh parsley leaves, chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, chopped
  • ⅓ cup almonds, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 head Treviso radicchio, coarsely chopped
  • 2 cups cooked farro
  • ¼ cup feta cheese, crumbled (optional)

Preparation

For the Lemon-Anchovy Dressing:

Combine garlic, anchovies, lemon juice and olive oil in a blender, and blend until totally emulsified.

For the salad:

Preheat oven to 375°F. Toss cauliflower florets, onions, thyme, parsley, garlic, almonds and lemon zest on a large sheet tray lined with parchment paper. Add lemon juice, olive oil, salt and pepper and toss with your hands to coat. Roast until golden brown, about 25 minutes.

Place the raw radicchio, cooked farro and the roasted vegetables in a large mixing bowl, and mix well. Drizzle dressing all over and toss well while still warm. Garnish with feta crumbles, if using.
