Heyo! Happy Monday. We are getting a big ‘ol snow storm today and I have to say, I’m pretty darn excited about it. That’s mainly because we don’t really have anywhere to go today, so I don’t have to drive anywhere. I can just stay in my cozy pants, make a big cup of tea, and watch that snow fall down. Also, I love a fresh coating of snow to make the streets pretty again.
I think another reason I’m excited is because Lars is SUPER excited. He would not stop talking about the snowstorm and how he wanted to build another Frosty the Snowman last night. He kept saying “big snowstorm fall from sky mama!” I guess his excitement was contagious! Plus – COZY PANTS you guys. I’m all about any reason to stay in my cozy pants all day.
But enough about snow and onto this recipe. Today I have a super delicious salad recipe for you that has ZERO lettuce in it. Just a ton of delicious roasted veggies and an even tastier dressing.
I don’t even know what to say the main star in this Roasted Cauliflower Sweet Potato Salad with Lemon Tahini Dressing. At first I thought roasted cauliflower but then NO the sweet potatoes are also amazing. But let’s not forget about those tasty little roasted spiced chickpeas and onions. And who could forget about the lemon tahini dressing?! It’s ALL just so tasty and they all work together so well!
I’ve made this salad a couple of times and it’s wonderful as a lighter side dish, a veggie-filled lunch, or even a light dinner! I will say, it is definitely best the first day. After that, the chickpeas tend to dry out a bit and are just not quite as good as the first day.
