Roasted Cauliflower Planks Topped with Mediterranean Salad

Please share if you love it!

With the Thanksgiving holiday behind us, it’s time to try something new like these roasted cauliflower planks I found at Tasting Spoons.

Roasted Cauliflower Planks

By itself, this recipe for roasted cauliflower isn’t all that impressive, but wait until you see what happens when these flower-like gems are topped with a colorful Mediterranean salad!

Roasted Cauliflower Planks

You’ll find more than a few Mediterranean salad recipes here at Mother Rimmy’s, but using roasted cauliflower as the base of this salad really gave this dish a unique twist. And I have to say the cauliflower benefits from spicy red onion, sweet chopped tomatoes, creamy avocado, and just a crumble of tart feta cheese.

That’s it for today – I’m off to work. Stay tuned on Thursday for a roundup of Healthy Mediterranean salad recipes. I’m on a roll. Have a terrific week everyone!

    The pairing of the salad with roasted cauliflower sounds very delicious and I can imagine the contrast textures. What a co-incidence it is…I too uploaded a cauliflower post.
