Spinach Salad with Roasted Cauliflower and Bell Peppers

Here is a salad that doesn’t even require a dressing, that’s how delicious roasted cauliflower and peppers are in this spinach salad.  I roasted an entire head of cauliflower, 2 green bell peppers and 1 small onion for the salad, that’s a lot of veggies!  Then I tossed the roasted veggies with baby spinach and voila! I had the most delicious salad ever. The whole family’s reaction was “This is yummy 😋👍!” They were also surprised that all the flavor in the salad came just from the roasted veggies. I had a dressing made but ended up not needing it. On the other hand, if you do want to toss the salad with a dressing the best one that pairs perfectly with roasted cauliflower and peppers is fresh citrusy lemon vinaigrette.
