Simple Roasted Beetroot and Carrot Salad

This Simple Roasted Beetroot and Carrot Salad was made last weekend when neither of us wanted to leave the warmth of our home.

I made do with what we already had indoors: some carrots, beetroot new potatoes and red onion.
As the beetroot and carrots roasted together, the beetroot infused some of its colour into the carrots almost making it look like almost like rainbow carrots.  the red onions became soft and silky and the small potatoes, golden and crisp.
I finished  this Simple Roasted Beetroot and Carrot Salad off with a little drizzle of balsamic vinegar and with a gentle crumbling of soft snow feta crumbs, inspired by the snow flakes falling from the sky outside that day.
I describe this as a Simple Roasted Beetroot Carrot Salad as it is hardly a recipe and mostly done by eye-balling ingredients and and to taste.  Feel free to serve it alongside some greens, in our case it was peppery rocket. 

I am sharing this Carrot and Beetroot Salad to Soups, Salads and Sammies hosted by Kahakai Kitchen as it can be eaten with a spoon like a chunky soup too; and The Flexitarian for MeatFree Recipe of the Week;  and with Confessions of a Mother Runner and Whisk and Two Wands for Meatless Monday.

    1. Thanks e. Not really a recipe, but I am glad you like it. I am back to work tomorrow, after having a few days off being really lazy. I could get used to it, but the bills won't get paid if we don't work. Maybe one day I will win the lottery...just enough so I don't have to work in a place that no longer stretches my mind or calls to my heart.I can only wish...Have a good week too

  4. We had a very mild weekend so I am surprised to hear you had snow! This is a delicious dish to keep warm inside with and I love the colour the beetroot provides.

    1. Kari, not the w/e just gone, but the one before that - this w/e yes, agree it was mild - we went to Ludlow for the day. I think this salad could benefit with some spelt or bulgar stirred into it too, to bulk it up

  6. The color is bursting from this salad, looks wonderful and quite visually appealing. Beets are not in my market right now but I will save this recipe for later.
