Warm Roasted Cauliflower Salad

I love roasting cauliflower and most of the time that is how I prepare it with a little olive oil and spices. But here is my recipe that adds some additional protein and other nutrients to make it into an entire meal. In the summer, try making this wonderful salad with fresh tomatoes instead of canned. Leftovers are always tasty, warm or cold.
