Mediterranean Veggie SaladMake on Drop
This salad is so simple and can be changed up to use any seasonal veggies of choice really. Think pumpkin, think asparagus, think roasted tomatoes, think different salad greens like kale or even add nuts and seeds as a topping instead of the feta. Really tasty, no dressing really required unless you want to, as the vegetables impart their own juice in the roasting process. This also can easily be made well in advance, just keep each roasted vegetable separate from the others in sealed containers in the fridge, assemble, dress, and eat. (One should always be dressed to eat in my opinion, but there you go!)
Hope you enjoy!
