Top Tips for Making BBQ Cauliflower Ranch Salad
I find the combination of iceberg lettuce, bell pepper, onion and carrots to be a refreshing contrast to the sweet and spicy flavors in the roasted cauliflower, but any favorite salad ingredients can be used. Another fave combo we enjoy is mixed greens topped with avocado, roasted red peppers and cucumber!
This salad combo pairs well with plain roasted cauliflower, too! Simply drizzle cauliflower florets with olive oil, salt and pepper and roast in a 400 degree oven for about 27 minutes.
This Cauliflower Salad recipe works well for meal-prepping! Simply prepare and store ingredients separately in the refrigerator and simply pull out and assemble when you’re ready for a salad!
