Curried Cauliflower Salad

"For this salad the vegetables are first roasted to maximize their flavor, then served with a lemony yogurt dressing. It is relatively fast to make, but you can still make the components a day ahead and store separately. From "Food and Wine" magazine. Sometimes I like to make this with frozen sugar snap peas, which I cut in half, crosswise, then roast without bothering to thaw first."
