Cauliflower salad from The Pullman in Glenwood Springs, CO


If you're convinced you have to wait until spring to satisfy your salad cravings, think again. John Little, the chef at The Pullman in Glenwood Springs, Colorado, hits plenty of high notes in his hearty roasted-cauliflower salad. First tossed with browned butter and honey, then oven-roasted, the florets are packed with flavor. Little then uses an even bolder hand, adding a piquant, pepper-studded relish, tossing in arugula and dousing it all with a bright lemon vinaigrette. Topped with crumbled chèvre, this salad doesn't adhere to the standards of its lightly dressed counterparts. But it packs a punch deserving of the winter-salad hall of fame.
