Mmmmmm… a great find from Snell Foods! This is the first time I have tried their Salad Dressing, I bought their Garlic Balsamic Vinaigrette and paired it with the Roasted Root Vegetable recipe they suggested. And the result is oh-so-Yummy! A definite easy peasy keeper!
You’ll find many many more recipes at their website. For example you can find more Garlic Balsamic Vinaigrette RECIPES.
Here’s my version of their Roasted Vegetables
Serves 2 (I suggest doubling the recipe so you have enough for salads for lunch the next day!!)
- 6-8 stalks asparagus, chopped
- 2 carrots, chopped
- 1 broccoli, chopped
- 2 parsnips, chopped
- 2 celery stalks, chopped
- 2 beets, chopped
- 1 small turnip, chopped
- 1/4 cup Garlic Balsamic Vinaigrette
- fresh ground pepper
- 1 T rosemary
- 1 T sage
- 1/2 cup wild rice, 1 cup water & 2 tomatoes sliced (Hubby’s Rice version)
- 3-4 BIG handfuls spinach (Cat’s Salad version)
Place all ingredients in a Ziploc bag, seal tightly and shake to coat evenly. I prepared this in the morning and left in the fridge all day. Talk about easy peasy!!
Spread vegetables on baking sheet and bake at 475 degrees for 30-45 minutes (time will depend on how large/small you cut your veggies).
Serve with Rice: I served with wild rice and sliced tomatoes for hubby!! 15 minutes before adding veggies to oven – prepare rice – add rice & water to pot and bring to a bowl and simmer 50 minutes and let sit 10 minutes before serving.
Serve with Greens: I felt the need for more greens so I enjoyed a big bowl of spinach topped with the roasted veggies. It’s so easy, just toss and serve! OK, next time I will make extra so I have enough to make more salads for our lunch the next day!
