With the longer days, warmer weather, and springtime produce now in stores, I am really embracing the “hearty” salads right now. And when it comes to salads, I really like them big, plentiful, and robust. No wimpy bowls of lettuce, you know?

Enter this roasted cauliflower salad. With a mix of roasted and fresh ingredients, it’s the perfect salad for summer. It’s also great for meal prep, and most importantly, it’s satisfying and deliciousRoasted Cauliflower Salad with Creamy Honey Mustard Vinaigrette | halfbakedharvest.com #healthyrecipes #salad #cauliflower

Just like you guys, my life is go, go, go. And as I’ve said before, I am always in need of quick and easy recipes. Over the last year I’ve slowly learned one very simple trick that’s a true game-changer when it comes to getting healthy recipes on the table every day of the week…

Use your oven and let it do all the work for you!

Honestly, if there’s one tip I have to give, it’s to invest in an amazing oven and USE IT! My KitchenAid 6-Burner Dual Fuel Freestanding Range, Commercial Style (with a gas cooktop and electric oven) are put to use pretty much every single day. Whether I’m baking my favorite cake, roasting vegetables, oven frying chicken, or making a cheesy pizza, my dual fuel KitchenAid range is almost always in use. It’s honestly one of the most reliable kitchen appliances I’ve ever owned.

For this spring cauliflower salad, I roasted both the cauliflower and the chickpeas together on ONE sheet pan. I can trust my electric oven to evenly roast the cauliflower, and crisp up the chickpeas, so I crank the oven up to a super high temperature.

You’ll also need plenty of spring greens, cucumbers, your favorite herbs, avocado, and some good feta cheese. I wanted to keep the salad base simple, since the cauliflower and chickpeas are pretty filling and bulk the salad up with healthy fiber and protein.

For the vinaigrette, I went with something a little different. I made a creamy honey mustard vinaigrette using tahini, honey, mustard, and apple cider vinegar. This makes for an extra creamy, sweet, and tangy vinaigrette.

I love tossing ingredients onto a sheet pan and creating a meal out of it. Using just one sheet pan for an entire meal eliminates extra dishes, freeing up time for you to relax before dinner.

For me, this probably means baking up a batch of my favorite cookies, or mixing up a new cocktail. But you can pick your own guilty pleasure. Have some YOU time while your trusty oven cooks dinner for you. See, how could you not love appliances that take care of all the hard work for you?

Something that people don’t know a lot about, but is one of my favorite tools in the kitchen is the 6-Burner Dual Fuel Freestanding Range’s conversion system. The built-in conversion system takes all the guesswork out of convection cooking, always ensuring exceptional results. The convection settings provide even baking results on all racks, even browning and faster roasting times for meats, which decreases the cooking times needed to get delicious results similar to outdoor grilling. So cool, right?

I really love that this range is dual fuel. It’s truly the best of both worlds. Precise control and flexibility with a gas cooking surface, combined with the reliability of an electric oven. This was one of the main reasons I decided to go with this range, and I could not be happier. 

So use your oven…starting with this healthy spring salad!

  1. Should the cauliflower and chick peas be warm or can u roast them ahead of time and refrigerate and add to the salad cold?

    1. Hey Sue,
      Totally up to you, either way would be great! Let me know if you give the recipe a try or have any other questions!! xTieghan

    This salad was amazing!!! My entire family (even the teenagers) loved it! I had to stop myself from nibbling on all of the spicy cauliflower and chickpeas, which paired so well with the creamy dressing. I didn’t measure ingredients and added a little cumin (bc I thought it was on the list) and the entire salad was consumed. I served it with mango/habanero brats, which paired very well. Thank you for your delicious creations.

    1. Hey Amy,

    This is delicious, but way too spicy for us. Next time (and there WILL be a next time…soon!) I’ll sub either regular chili powder or ancho chile powder for the chipotle. Thanks for another great recipe!

    1. Hey Tracey,
      Awesome!! Thanks so much for making this recipe, I am so glad to hear that it was enjoyed!! So sorry about the heat!! xx

  8. Very tastefull and healthy recipe.
    Ons tip. Just roast the leaves of the cauliflower at the same time with the rest. Crispy and tasty they are.

    This was so good 2 of us finished it off in one sitting. The dressing had just the perfect amount of sweetness to it, and just worked beautifully with the cheese and veggies. We will definitely be making this again!

    We always enjoy a good salad for dinner. This was such a unique twist to the traditional ingredients and packed!!! with flavor. Loved all the fresh herbs with every bite! Have yet to find a recipe of your that we don’t like.
    Keep up the great work Oscar Meyer Teigs (That’s just cruel!)

    1. Hey Diane,
      LOL right?!? Awesome!! Thanks a lot for trying this recipe out, I love to hear that it was enjoyed! xTieghan

  11. I really don’t like the taste of tahini (or peanut butter) in dressings or sauces. What can I use as a substitute? Is it there for thickening or flavor?

    Everything else about this salad looks great and I can’t wait to make it!

    1. Hi Shannon,
      You can just skip the tahini. Please let me know if you give the recipe a try, I hope you love it! xTieghan

    You have to make this! The flavor combo is elite. Also, I always double dressing recipes because I feel like there’s never enough. I probably didn’t need to here, but now I have delicious dressing for the week!

    1. Hey Erin,
      Awesome! Thanks a lot for making this recipe. I love to hear that it was enjoyed! Happy Thursday❄️ xxT
