Ingredients
  • 1 large head cauliflower cut into 1 inch florets
  • 2 tsp. extra-virgin olive oil
  • Sea salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
  • 4 cups mixed salad greens
  • 1 head Swiss chard finely chopped leaves and stems, ends trimmed
  • 1 large ripe avocado peeled, pitted and diced
  • 4 fresh figs halved
  • 2 Tbsp. creamy almond butter
  • Juice of 1 large lemon
  • 1 small clove garlic
  • 1 Tbsp. sunflower seeds
  • 1 Tbsp. dried cherries
  • 1 tsp. fresh lemon zest
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Prepare a large rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Place the cauliflower on the prepared baking sheet and drizzle with oil; rub the oil onto the cauliflower with your hands and sprinkle with sea salt and pepper. Roast in the oven for 40 minutes or until tender.
  3. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, combine the salad, Swiss chard, avocado and figs. Set aside.
  4. In a small bowl, whisk the almond butter, lemon and garlic until well combined. Add more lemon juice if needed for a thinner consistency. Season to taste with sea salt and pepper.
  5. Add the roasted cauliflower to the salad mixture and drizzle with the dressing. Top with the sunflower seeds, dried cherries and lemon zest; toss to combine and serve immediately.
