Directions

For dressing: Whisk all ingredients together, or shake in a sealed jar, until combined. Set aside while you prepare the salad.

For roasted cauliflower salad: Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Brush a baking sheet with 1 Tbsp. of the oil. Cut cauliflower head into ½- to ¾-inch thick slices, or planks, and lay flat on the greased baking sheet. Throw any extra cauliflower pieces that fell away while slicing onto the baking sheet. Drizzle (or brush) cauliflower with remaining 1 Tbsp. oil and sprinkle with citrus seasoning. Roast for 20 to 30 min., flipping over halfway through, until tender and beginning to brown. Remove from oven and let cool on the baking sheet. Transfer to a platter (or individual plates) and scatter orange slices, onion slices, olives, and parsley over the roasted cauliflower. Drizzle with dressing and serve any extra dressing on the side.
