Cooked Vegetable Salad Recipe

Salad doesn’t have to be raw! If the typical lettuce-tomato-onion rotation is getting old, why not try this luxurious spread of oven-roasted vegetables? Zucchini and eggplant ribbons, fresh tomatoes, and purple onions are roasted in olive oil to bring out their sweeter flavors, and then garnished with snow pea shoots and fresh herbs to add a refreshing crunch.

It’s an ideal salad for the summer market season, when most of the ingredients are in season, so you can get the juiciest tomatoes and the freshest zucchini to create your masterpiece.
