This is absolutely gorgeous. I made it from a whole small cauliflower and ended up eating ALL of it by myself in one meal plus seconds. The flavours mix is just genius. I did not have flaked almonds, so I have flaked my own, unpeeled, with skin, and it was lovely, in fact I think the skin adds flavour. Also I did not have dill, so I have omitted that entirely. And finally, I did not have sherry vinegar, so I have used 2 tbsp of balsamic vinegar + 1 tbsp sherry instead

Margypargy, This recipe is stated as vegetarian. If you want to make a vegan version just replace the honey with maple syrup (the real Canadian stuff). There won't be muich difference in taste and the maple syrup is, or should be, vegan as it comes from trees.

Very tasty despite having to omit the raisins due to commonly held view amongst my offspring that they are poisonous...

Very nice way to prepare cauliflower indeed! Unfortunately I didn't have any spinach so I made it without. Also changed the other ingredients a bit with what I had at home: I took pine nuts instead of almonds, balsamico instead of sherry vinegar, added some mustard to the vinegrette and some fresh coriander instead of dill.
