Cod Salad - (Insalata Di Baccala)

1 1/2 pounds baccala (salted cod) -- soaked in several changes of water for 48 hours
1 cauliflower head -- cut small florets
1/4 cup finely-chopped fresh parsley

1 small fresh hot chile -- seeded, and finely chopped
1 chicory head -- coarsely chopped
1 tablespoon white wine vinegar
1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
Salt -- to taste
Freshly-ground black pepper -- to taste


In a medium saucepan, bring 2 quarts of water to a simmer and add the baccala. Cook for 5 minutes, then drain, and set aside to cool.


Bring 6 quarts of water to a boil and add 2 tablespoons salt. Add the cauliflower and cook for 5 minutes, or until tender. Drain and allow to cool.


Place the cooled cauliflower in a large bowl. Flake the baccala with a fork and add to the cauliflower, along with the parsley, mint, chile, chicory, vinegar, olive oil and salt and pepper, to taste. Toss well to coat and serve.
