  1. Pre-heat the oven to 400F. Toss the cauliflower florets with garlic powder, salt, and olive oil. Roast florets down on a sheet pan for 30 minutes. In the meantime prep the rest of the salad.
  2. Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Add the bacon strips to the skillet and cook 8-10 minutes a side or until desired crispiness (I like it well done). Remove the and bacon and chop it up but keep the skillet on the heat.
  3. Season your chicken cutlets with Sazon, salt, and pepper. Place in the skillet and cook 4-5 minutes per side or until done. Set aside.
  4. When your cauliflower is done, assemble your salads.
  5. Add 2 cups of baby spinach in each bowl, add a little sprinkle of salt and pepper to your greens (always), then top with the chicken cutlet (you can dice it up), half of the cauliflower florets.
  6. Add the bacon crumbles and red onion. Drizzle 2 tablespoons of dressing over each salad. Enjoy!
