Ox Restaurant - Roasted Cauliflower with Spicy Golden Raisin Vinaigrette, Mint & Sesame
A perennial favorite at the restaurant, this caramelized cauliflower is also likely to be a favorite at home. The spiciness and saltiness of the vinaigrette, pops of sweetness from the raisins, and bracing freshness of the mint help cut through any fatty grilled meats and contrast with the smoky flavors of the grill. We find its sweet-sour style reminiscent of a Chinese sauce or Sicilian-style agrodolce.
