Healthy Winter Salad with Avocado Dressing

Roasting beets and carrots are super simple and require minimal seasoning: salt and pepper!  The only difficult part is cleaning, peeling, and chopping them, but once you have tried roasted beets and carrots, you’ll forget about the prep work.

The dressing is slightly tangy and nutty, and packed with nutrients. The base is avocados, red wine vinegar, olive oil, and hemp hearts!  Hemp hearts give it a mildly nutty flavor and a ton of health benefits.

The dressing is super flavorful and pairs very nicely with chili-spiced food: chili-spiced chickpeas, tofu, salmon, or chicken.  I highly recommend adding a protein source to make this salad a healthy main meal!

Ingredients

Scale

Roasted Beets & Carrots:

  • 8 carrots
  • 4 beets
  • 2 tbsp avocado oil
  • a healthy pinch of salt and pepper

Avocado Dressing:

  • 1/3 cup olive oil (extra virgin)
  • 1/3 cup red wine vinegar
  • 3 tbsp hemp seeds
  • 1 avocado (peel and pitted)
  • a healthy pinch of salt and pepper (plus more to taste *)

To Serve:

  • mixed greens
  • green onions (sliced)
  • almonds (crushed)
  • Protein Options: chickpeas, chicken, tofu, or salmon
  • feta or vegan-friendly cheese

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 435 degrees Fahrenheit and line a baking sheet with foil.  
  2. Clean and peel the carrots and beets. Cut in bite-size pieces and place them on the baking sheet—toss with avocado oil, salt, and pepper. Cover with foil and bake for 25 minutes. Remove foil, toss ingredients with a spoon, and continue roasting for an additional 10-15 minutes, or until fork-tender. 
  3. Make Avocado & Hemp Seed Dressing by adding all ingredients to a blender. Taste and add more salt and pepper, if needed. 
  4. Build the salad by placing greens down, adding the roasted vegetables and optional toppings. Add dressing on top or serve as a side or as a healthy meal. 

Notes

* If the Avocado & Hemp Seed Dressing is too vinegary, add a pinch of salt. Taste and determine if it needs more. If you want a thinner sauce, add a tablespoon of water at a time.
