Roasted Carrot, Golden Beet & Lentil Salad


Isn't this such a beautiful looking salad!!? I thought I would switch things up a bit and try a roasted veggie salad! I ate this as a warm dish but would be extremely yummy cold as well!


I made a delicious dill sauce to drizzle on top with tzatziki, lime and dill! This was a super easy salad to make. All I needed to do for this dish was roast the beets and carrots (with a little olive oil and salt and pepper) then put them on top of a bed of canned lentils and topped them with feta and sliced almonds


Healthy Foodiee Tip:

Roasted veggies add so much flavour to any dish! I always drizzle mine with olive oil, salt and pepper and sometimes I add rosemary.

This is another great example of switching up your salads to make eating healthy fun and delicious. I am also IN LOVE with pea shoots and micro greens find that they make any dish look so colourful! I hope you enjoy new salad recipes such as this! Enjoy!
