Roasted Vegetable Salad

I had some veggies hanging out that I wasn't sure what to do with when I came across this recipe in Everyday Food Light.

I didn't follow the exact recipe, but guess what, that is ok. Recipes are just a guide...you don't have to do EXACTLY what they say. Baking is a little less forgiving of tweaks...but that is why I don't bake :) Preheat your oven to 450 and lets go!

ingredients
You will need some lettuce, yogurt, garlic, veggies to roast, olive oil and vinegar.

veggies ready to roast
I roasted up some sweet potato, red onion and sweet peppers. You can roast whatever you have on hand. Chop them pretty evenly, throw them in a bowl with some olive oil, salt and pepper and give them a toss. Lay them out in a single layer on a rimmed baking/cookie sheet and get them in the oven. Let them roast for as long as you want, these took about 40 minutes. I like mine really roasted.

Yummy sweet and savory goodness.

dressing
Now all you have to do is make the dressing and you are ready to eat.

This was refreshing and filling and had so many fun textures, colors and flavors. If you are not a fan of hot and cold or sweet and savory this probably wouldn't be for you, but I loved it.

  1. I can't tell you how good this looks. I've been working with sweets and something so deliciously savory would be wonderful now :-). I hope you have a great weekend. Blessings...Mary
