    For the cashews

    For the cauliflower

    For the salad


    1. 1
      For the cashews: Heat the oven to 350°F Place the cashews on a baking sheet and roast for 5 minutes. (Or buy roasted, unsalted cashews and skip this step.).
    2. 2
      While the cashews are roasting, in a medium bowl, combine the maple syrup, curry powder and salt. Toss the cashews with the spiced maple syrup, then spread again on the baking sheet.
    3. 3
      Roast the cashews for 15 more minutes, tossing every 5 minutes, until toasted and aromatic. Remove from heat and cool well. This makes more cashews than are needed for the remainder of the recipe; the cashews can be stored at room temperature in an airtight container.
    4. 4
      For the cauliflower: Heat the oven to 400°F In a large bowl, whisk together the olive oil, curry powder, salt, cumin, coriander, mustard and ginger. Add the cauliflower florets and toss to combine and evenly coat.
    5. 5
      Spread the florets in a single layer on a baking sheet and roast until golden-brown and aromatic, about 20 minutes, tossing every few minutes for even cooking. Remove from heat and cool completely.
    6. 6
      For the salad: In a small bowl, whisk together the agave syrup, lemon juice and olive oil to form finishing syrup. Add a little water to thin it out if you want. Set aside.
    7. 7
      In a large bowl, toss together the cauliflower, peas, bell pepper and apricots( or golden raisins). Pour over half of the finishing syrup and toss to combine. Stir in the cashews, cilantro and salt. Taste, adding additional finishing syrup if desired and adjusting the seasoning as needed. Cover and refrigerate a couple of hours to give the flavors time to marry before serving. This makes about 8 cups salad.

      THE BEST cauliflower salad you will ever make. The only thing that needs changing is ADD SALT TO TASTE. The first time I made this I followed the recipe and it was disgustingly salty. For the cauliflower, I only add 1/4 tsp salt now. To the salad, I add 1/4 tsp, then adjust from there. Also it took me about 2 hours to make this, not 35 minutes, but the finished result is totally worth it.
