The goal to drop a few pounds consistently ranks as one of the top New Year’s resolutions. If you’re making the switch from sammies to salads, try this one—it’s packed with big Texas flavors and won’t leave you hungry.

How to Make It

1) Lightly drizzle olive oil over the cauliflower and red onion and season with salt and pepper.

2) Roast in the oven at 400 degrees Fahrenheit for 10 minutes or until the cauliflower is golden brown and the onion is deep purple in color. Set aside and allow to cool.

3) To assemble the salad, place each ingredient on the board in any fashion. Drizzle with Caesar dressing and finish with some freshly cracked black pepper and coarse sea salt. Alternative option: place all ingredients in a bowl and toss it up!
