A Salad Reminiscent of Sunday Dinner

Roasted root vegetables atop crisp greens is a winning pairing since they won't inflate your belly and they provide a lovely contrast in textures. This simple recipe includes roasted parsnips and carrots (though sweet potatoes would work too), plus walnuts for crunch and pears for a touch of sweetness (if you're sensitive, though, omit the fruit). One more reason to try this salad: the roasted vegetables are tasty hot or cold, making this a nice lunch option.
