Ingredients

  • 1 head cauliflower, chopped into florets (about 3 1/2 cups florets)
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 2 cups kale, ribs removed and roughly chopped
  • 1 cup grape tomatoes, halved
  • 1 avocado, peeled, pitted, and diced
  • 6 strips crispy bacon, crumbled

Creamy Lemon Dressing

  • 1/4 cup heavy cream
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 Tbsp dijon mustard
  • 2 Tbsp freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper

Instructions

  • Pre-heat oven to 425 degrees.
  • In a large bowl, toss cauliflower florets with olive oil, garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Lay in a single layer on a baking sheet.
  • Bake cauliflower for 20-25 minutes, tossing about halfway through baking time, until it's turning golden. Remove from oven and let cool for about 15 minutes.
  • Add cauliflower to a large bowl with kale, tomatoes, avocado, and bacon and toss to combine. Drizzle with creamy lemon dressing.

Creamy Lemon Dressing

  • Add all ingredients to a mason jar and shake to combine. If you don't have a jar, put ingredients in a medium bowl and whisk to combine.
