Roasted Root Vegetable & Walnut Salad

I love a good salad – and this salad is perfect. It’s filling, hearty & cosy as well as simple & totally healthy.

Oven roasted vegetables are amazing, they are always good.
Simply combine delicious roasted vegetables & fresh greens with some walnuts… and voila… you have an incredible salad.

I love making this roasted vegetable & walnut salad for a healthy lunch or dinner. It’s really easy to roast a big tray of these veggies and serve this fresh salad for friends & family or make a quick salad for yourself.

This recipe is easy to make, is totally healthy & is free from any nasty, processed ingredients. It’s also a well balanced meal – it’s filled with healthy fats, healthy plant-based protein and good carbs.

I hope you love it as much as I do! Enjoy! xo

To make this salad you can either use a serving of my savoury roasted root vegetables or you can follow the instructions below to make a single serving of roasted root veggies! If you choose to use my savoury roasted root vegetable recipe, simply serve a portion of veggies with a big handful of fresh greens (baby spinach and arugula are my favorites), a squeeze of fresh lemon juice and raw walnuts.
