Roasted Cauliflower

4 Servings
25 Minutes

This roasted cauliflower salad might just be my new favorite side dish! The vinaigrette is UNREAL.

I was craving some food that would remind me of travelling to the Middle East so I paired this dish with Middle Eastern chicken thighs, caramelized onions, a tahini salad, homemade pita, and homemade labneh.

Cauliflower is such a great way to get your healthy carbs. I opted to serve this with my dinner instead of having rice, and I am so glad that I did.

My partner ate 3 of the 4 servings it made - and doesn't even like cauliflower! I highly recommend this amazing yet super easy dish.
