Keeping the salad game strong in the winter can be challenging because our bodies crave warm, comfort food. Well, I’m excited to share a new salad that is perfect for this winter season!
It is loaded with roasted beets and carrots and topped with a refreshing and nutrient-packed avocado dressing! This would be the type of salad you would be ordering if you were out to eat; it’s that good!
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 the 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 main meal!
Don’t forget to add some toasted almonds for crunch, green onions, and feta cheese or plant-based feta for additional flavor!
I hope you all enjoy this tasty salad!
