Roasted Root Vegetable Salad

Roasted Root Vegetable Salad

By using assorted root vegetables, and by roasting instead of boiling, the unique tastes and textures of this dish  make for a great twist on a traditional potato salad. The creaminess of the balsamic mayo and the crunch of the  chives make this one memorable recipe.

Make sure to use a great quality extra virgin olive oil. We love Colavita!
