Curried Cauliflower & Chickpea Salad With Mango Chutney Dressing

This is the best salad for BBQs or big dinners in the warmer weather. Cauliflower florets and chickpeas are roasted in turmeric, paprika, ginger and chilli before being topped with a zesty mango chutney yoghurt dressing – so delicious and so simple to make. If you don't have mango chutney, you can replace it with any kind of chutney or chilli jam.
