"My mom's" Salad--Take on a Cosi Classic:
Baby spring greens, gorgonzola, pears, pistachio nuts, balsamic dressing, red grapes. Cut and toss.
My Roasted Root Vegetables1 package Brussels sprouts (adjust to amount of people)
1 package parsnips (adjust to amount of people)
6 turnips (adjust to amount of people)
Olive oil (to coat)
Garlic cloves (adjust to taste and amount of veggies)
Fresh rosemary sprig
Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Line baking sheet with tinfoil (my favorite is Reynolds Wrap heavy duty non * stick). Chop all veggies, as indicated in ingredients adjust amounts based on the amount of people. Pound garlic cloves and adjust amount based on taste and amount of veggies. Put veggies into a bowl and coat with olive oil then add pounded garlic and fresh rosemary sprigs. Transfer mixture to baking sheet. Make sure the veggies have surface area to allow for roasting. If necessary, use more than one baking sheet. Baking time depends on amount of veggies therefore continue to watch the veggies and stir until veggies are ready. When veggies are ready remove rosemary stem. Transfer veggies to serving bowel. Garnish suggestion is feta or toasted pumpkin seeds.
