Orange Cauliflower Salad

Orange chicken is a classic dish. Orange chicken was a staple in my household growing up. As I got more into health I realized most orange chicken is not extremely healthy due to the high amount of added sugar. I decided to make my own healified orange chicken and I loved it. I thought it tasted even better then normal orange chicken. It was so good so I decided to use the same sauce and add it to other ingredients like chickpeas and cauliflower. I made an orange cauliflower salad and it was filled with sweet and savory flavors that were mouth watering. This recipe makes 2 salads.
