Roasting vegetables is a wonderful and healthy meal preparation technique that really draws out the natural flavours. While it does take a little extra time and effort, adding roasted vegetables to a salad is a surefire way to deliver a bigger flavour hit.

The garlic, onion, and nut flavours infuse into the other contents of the roasting tray. Plus adding all of these ingredients to the salad bowl straight from the oven means a lovely warm salad gets served up for you to enjoy straight away!
