I just happened to have the two main ingredients for this Roasted Cauliflower and Mushroom Salad recipe and it couldn’t be simpler! It really took very little time to prep and bake. Simply cut your cauliflower into bite-size florets, clean and halve your mushrooms and toss together in the simple marinade.
I know it's recommended to wipe your mushrooms to clean them, but I've found that rinsing them under running water works just as well. Once these are all coated in your 4 ingredient marinade, you’ll just pop these in the oven, and they are ready in about 25 minutes.
So hearty and filling, you can top them over a bed of Arugula for some freshness.
