LOOKING for: Cauliflower Agridolce -Italian T & T out there??

16 years ago

I have a great cauli that I want to cook and while I can always curry it for dh, I am remembering a recipe I had yrs ago in a printout for cauli done this way to be served at room temp.

I found this recipe at but think I would want to steam the cauli a bit first ? Any AmerItalians out there have a family recipe for this.

Eggplant Salad Agridolce

2 tablespoons olive oil

2 cloves garlic, minced

1 small onion, chopped

1/2 red bell pepper, chopped

1/2 cup balsamic vinegar

4 oriental eggplants, baked until soft and cut into strips

1/2 cup greek black olives, pitted and coarsely chopped

1/4 cup toasted pine nuts

pinch cayenne


In a medium skillet, heat the oil. Cook the garlic, onion, and pepper for 5 minutes. Add the vinegar and continue cooking until the mixture is thick and syrupy.

Add the eggplant with the remaining ingredients. Cook for another 3 minutes and taste for salt. Serve warm or at room temperature with crackers or bread or as part of an antipasto platter.
