Sicilian Cauliflower Salad
Sicilian Cauliflower Salad
(Insalata del Rinforzo)
 
 
Its Italian name indicates that it is quite energizing (rinforzo means "reinforcement," as in nourishment).
 
 
Ingredients:
 
1 head cauliflower, cut into florets
2 tablespoons plus 1/2 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons red wine vinegar
1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
Freshly ground black pepper
1/2 cup pitted black olives, minced
1/4 cup capers, drained
1/4 cup gherkins (sour baby pickles), minced
1 tablespoon minced Italian parsley
4 anchovies, chopped
2 hard-boiled eggs, shelled and minced
 
Directions:
 
Bring 3 quarts of water to a boil.
 
Drop in the cauliflower florets and 2 tablespoons of the salt; cook until tender-crisp, about 3 minutes, then drain and shock in ice water; drain again.
 
Place the cauliflower florets in a bowl.
 
Add the remaining 1/2 teaspoon of salt, the vinegar, olive oil, pepper, olives, capers, gherkins, parsley and anchovies, and set aside to marinate, tossing once in a while, for 1 hour to 6 hours at room temperature.
 
Sprinkle with the hard-boiled eggs and enjoy. Serves 6.
 
That's it!
