Easy Roasted Vegetable Salad with Beans and Balsamic Vinaigrette

Intervale Food Hub Roasted Vegetable Salad

This technique is one of our all-time favorites for making the most of big piles of vegetables. It's especially helpful when you have a busy schedule, and want to cook once, but have lots of meals ready to go. 

Start with vegetables - chop them into relatively even sized pieces. Keep in mind that bulkier veggies, like carrots, might cook more slowly, so can be cut slightly smaller to ensure even cooking with a big mixed vegetable roast or sauté.

Then, add in extras to make well-rounded meals:

  • Add chicken, tofu, or beans for extra protein (we used beans from this week's Omnivore and Localvore Packages)
  • Add pasta or grains like quinoa, couscous, etc. for healthy carbohydrates
  • Sunflower seeds, dried cranberries, or nuts can add even more nutrients and great texture
  • Add dressing when you're ready to serve - we have a quick and simple balsamic vinaigrette recipe below!
