Tired of the same old salad? Because greens are so healthy and full of nutrients, it’s a good idea to eat them as often as possible, preferably daily. To make them taste better during the cold time of the year, I like combining them with roasted vegetables.

You can prepare this recipe with a variety of root veggies such as beets and carrots, sweet potatoes, onions, etc. Mix it up to keep it interesting!
