Roasted Cauliflower Salad with Maple Tahini Dressing

This Roasted Cauliflower Salad with Maple Tahini Dressing is packed with all the good stuff: roasted chickpeas, cauliflower, toasted pumpkin seeds and fresh greens. You’ll have a hard time not eating the maple tahini dressing by the spoonful as it is garlicky, smooth, and super creamy. This is a lovely salad to enjoy for lunch or as a yummy side dish for dinner.

Serves: 4
Time to Make: 1 hour + 10 minutes


  1. Preheat the oven to 375ºF and line 2 baking sheets.
  2. Rinse and chop the cauliflower into small florets, and place in a bowl. Add 2 tsp of oil to the cauliflower and toss. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and then add to a baking sheet.
  3. Rinse and dry the chickpeas. Add the chickpeas to a bowl and toss with 1-2 tsp of oil of choice and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Add the chickpeas to the second baking sheet.
  4. Place both baking sheets in the oven. Bake the chickpeas for 30-40 minutes until they are crispy. Roast the cauliflower for 40-50 minutes until it is soft and slightly golden. Note: You can roast both on the same baking sheet, I suggest keeping them as separate as you can though as you will need to remove the chickpeas from the oven before the cauliflower.
  5. While the chickpeas and cauliflower are roasting, prepare the dressing. Add all the dressing ingredients to a food processor and process until smooth. Option to whisk the dressing by hand.
  6. Add ¼ cup of raw pumpkin seeds to a small saucepan and place over medium-low heat. Occasionally toss until the pumpkin seeds are toasted (roughly 6 minutes).
  7. Thinly slice the cucumber and green onions. Add a few large handfuls of greens to a large bowl along with the cucumber and green onions.
  8. Let the chickpeas and cauliflower cool slightly and then add them along with the pumpkin seeds to the greens. Toss in the maple-tahini dressing.
