roasted root vegetables + greens

Roasted Roots, Greens5

In the past there wasn’t much about a making a salad that excited me. I always followed the basic midwestern formula of a tiny bit of greens, even less veggies, fistfuls of cheese, mostly croutons and a crap-ton of ranch dressing. Don’t get me wrong, while Hidden Valley soup is delicious, it becomes tiresome after a while. Much like having to see Lena Dunham’s orangutan titties on ‘Girls‘ EVERY Sunday.

In an effort to branch out and try to class it up a bit, we came up with this recipe. This salad carries a bit more heft and could even stand as a main dish by topping it with some seared flank steak, grilled chicken, or just by washing it down with a gargantuan tumbler of cabernet. We find that last trick to make just about anything into a ‘main course.’ Even just a handful of Rolos.
