Winter Veggie Salad
Watch as Chef Lisa LaValle shows how to make the perfect warm veggie salad. Recipe below:

  • Boil beets whole for 1 hour with skin on. Remove from heat, cool and peel. Cut into 1/2″ pieces.
  • Peel carrots and parsnips, cut into 1/2″ pieces. Boil salted water and blanch for 3-4 minutes. Let cool.
  • Toss all vegetables in olive oil, minced garlic, salt and pepper.
  • Roast at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes until brown and tender.
  • To add more flavor, toss them in maple syrup or honey and some fresh dill after roasting for a sweet glaze.
