This has my new favorite salad lately. I love the roasted cauliflower! Anything roasted is amazing because it gives it that slightly charred flavor. The best part of this recipe is this dressing. Oh my, it’s good! It would taste great with any salad. I love kale because it doesn’t get soggy like other lettuces, so I just make a big bowl of this and eat it for lunch a few days in a row.
