Prep Time: 
30 minutes
Serves: 8 to 10


3/4 cup Simply Dressed® Greek Feta Salad Dressing
4 cups fresh cauliflower florets
2 tbsp olive oil
2 large golden beets
1/4 tsp ground cumin
1/2 cup roasted red pepper slivers
1 cup fresh parsley leaves
1 cup diced cucumber
One (15 oz.) can chick peas, rinsed & drained
1/2 cup slivered and pitted kalamata olives
1/4 cup diced red onion
3 oz. crumbled feta cheese


Preheat oven to 400° F. Combine cauliflower and olive oil and place on a baking sheet. Roast cauliflower 15 to 18 minutes or until cauliflower is golden and tender (times will vary depending on size of cauliflower pieces).

Place beets in a saucepan and cover with water, bring to a boil and simmer until tender, about 20 to 30 minutes (times will vary depending on size of beets). Cool slightly, peel and dice.

In a large bowl, combine Simply Dressed® Greek Feta Salad Dressing with ground cumin. Add all remaining ingredients and toss well. The salad is best served right after it is tossed.
