Roasted Summer Vegetable Salad

This is one of my favorite things to make in the late summer — a gorgeous platter of roasted vegetables that’s really less work than it may seem at first glance. It’s an extravaganza of flavor, and though it’s perfect for late summer or early fall, with these particular veggies there’s no reason you can’t make it year-round. Substitute or add other vegetables if you’d like — mushrooms, yellow squash, green beans, asparagus … increase the amount of marinade if need be. Continue Reading…

Leftover roasted vegetables can be used to make wraps or to top pizza. Continue Reading…
