  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees Cut the cauliflower into bite size florets. I leave a couple of leaves attached as they get nicely caramelized. Spray a baking sheet with olive oil, spread the florets around and sprinkle with salt, garlic powder and sumac. Spray the top with more olive oil, cover loosely with foil and roast for 30 to 40 minutes, depending on whether you like your vegetable a bit crunchy or softer. Allow to cool. In a mixing bowl (I use one of those egg whiskers where you put the ingredients in a jar and shake to mix) put all the other ingredients and whisk to incorporate. If you’ve salted the cauliflower well before roasting you don’t need any more salt here When cauliflower has cooled, combine in a bowl with the dressing and let sit for 30 minutes or more in the refrigerator to blend the flavors.Serve as a side dish at a picnic, or with other mezes in a mediteranean-style dinner.
