Traffic Light Salad

Serves 6 Prep Time 5 minutes   Cook Time 50 minutes   Rated:

I love the flavour of Roasted Vegies and this is a purler of a salad because of the beautiful flavours and colors, so spoil yourself and your family and use a beautiful roasting pan. You could even serve it in the pan if you were pushed for time, though we do like arranging it in layers as pictured. It is a little bit special. And to be honest, one of the easiest recipes around, no Thermomix required! You could add a little crumbled feta on top if you wanted to.

Cue the roast beef, or use this as a great vegetarian main!
