I love roasted veggies almost as much as I am loving rewatching Sabrina the Teenage Witch right now! Yes you heard that right. On days when Matt works I like to keep a show on in the background and one I have seen before is best so I can work and not really pay attention, then watch when I am feeding Ruthie. I am working my way thorough Sabrina and it just brings me back to my childhood – I love it! Okay now back to roasted veggies. There are so many great ones to choose from but this salad highlights my fall favorites – delicata squash, parsnips and brussels sprouts. I roast them up with a simple spice mix of garlic powder, sage, salt and pepper, and also add that mix into the dressing for the kale.
This dish is perfection as a side for any fall gathering! I love that it is just a bunch of veggies but has such great textures (hello pop of pomegranate and apple) and everyone will love it. So make it for a friendsgiving, thanksgiving, sunday night family dinner, or even make a batch on sunday to have for the week! The best part about this salad is that because kale is so resilient you can eat leftovers. Which is fabulous because I made a whole bunch and plan on eating it all week. So go go go to the store, get these veggies and ENJOY!
Aren’t pomegranates just the gems of the fruit world?
