Summer's Best Potluck Dish: Three Bean Salad

Buffalo Cauliflower & Blue Cheese Sandwich

You can make this sandwich ahead of time, but due to the amount of sauce on the cauliflower, you’ll need to create a barrier between it and the bread to avoid sogginess. Layer the cilantro and celery on the bottom, then the cauliflower, and top with the blue cheese. If the flavors sound familiar, they are of course a spin on traditional hot wings, served with blue cheese sauce, and this sandwich is the perfect fare for game day or tailgating.

Ingredients
 

  • 2- foot long baguette
  • 1 small head cauliflower
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • ½ cup buffalo style hot sauce
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 cup fresh cilantro, coarsely chopped
  • 6-8 ounces crumbled blue cheese
  • 2 stalks celery, diced

Instructions
 

  • Preheat your oven to 375 F. Wash and cut the cauliflower into small florets. Toss with the olive oil and salt and roast until softened, about 30 minutes. Remove from the oven and pour the hot sauce over the cauliflower, stirring to coat. Return to the oven and cook another 5 minutes. Remove and let cool.
  • Slice the bread lengthwise so that you have a long top and bottom. On the bottom of the bread, layer the cilantro, followed by the celery. Next layer the cauliflower, cutting any pieces that are larger than a walnut. Scatter the cheese evenly on top of the celery and top with the bread.
  • Slice and serve immediately, or wrap and place in the refrigerator for 1-2 hours. Bring back to room temperature or warm gently before serving.
