Roast Vegetable Salad

This is the best way to use up a mix of vegetables that bake well - a little bit of everything is what you want. The dish can be varied each time by adding more or less of any ingredient. You may wish to vary the ingredient portions for example, to suit the protein you are serving this with. This recipe is also a great way to feed the masses - the recipe is easily doubled, tripled and so on- just try to keep the vegetables on one layer so that they roast evenly. The serving size is really only limited by the size of your oven and trays! Recipe provided by Vanessa Rigley.
