  1. 1

    Roast the Cauliflower

    Remove leaves from cauliflower head, core, and cut florets into 1/2" pieces. Place cauliflower on baking sheet and toss with 1 1/2 Tbsp. olive oil and 1/2 tsp. salt. Spread into a single layer and roast 22-25 minutes, or until edges begin to char. Remove from oven and set aside.

  2. 2

    Prepare the Ingredients

    While cauliflower roasts, rinse pineapple under warm water if still frozen. Cut pineapple into 1/4" dice. Drain roasted red peppers and cut into 1/4" dice. Trim and thinly slice green onion on an angle. Mince cilantro (no need to stem). Zest lime, halve, and juice. Rinse chicken breasts, pat dry, and season both sides with 1/2 tsp. salt and 1/4 tsp. pepper.

  3. 3

    Cook the Chicken

    Place a medium pan over medium heat. Add 2 tsp. olive oil and chicken to hot pan and cook 5-8 minutes per side, or until chicken is golden brown and reaches a minimum internal temperature of 165 degrees. Remove to a plate and let rest 5 minutes. Loosely tent with foil to keep warm until plating.

  4. 4

    Make the Salsa

    Combine pineapple, green onion, and roasted red peppers in a small bowl.

  5. 5

    Finish the Cauliflower
