Roasted Balsamic Glazed Vegetable Salad

Roasted Balsamic Glazed Vegetable Salad

Back in high school, when I was a prep chef, I was in charge of preparing a wide variety of the foods and some dishes. Normally, a typical salad is with lettuce of some kind, but not this version. My Roasted Balsamic Glazed Vegetable Salad is truly mouth-watering and light on the belly. Sometimes that’s exactly what you’re looking for, whether a light lunch or maybe a fun pre-dinner salad.
