Roasted butternut squash, peppers, onion and cherry tomatoes mixed with fluffy quinoa and crispy kale with a drizzle of orange and honey dressing. This veggie salad can be enjoyed as a warm salad or cold, it's totally up to you!
Experiment with the vegetables you include, courgette would be delightful in this as would sweet potato. Mix things up a little and see which you prefer. The same goes for dressing too. I really enjoyed an orange and honey dressing on this veggie salad however a soy/tamari sauce and lime dressing could work equally well!
