Roasted Rustic Salad

I was looking for a quick, light meal for dinner tonight. My sweet friend Kathrin sent me home with some fresh broccoli and cauliflower last night~ so a roasted salad sounded delish! I threw in a few potatoes and some fresh sage and we were golden! YUM. Steve wanted to know if there was more… apparently I didn’t make big enough portion :). Maybe it’s time to revert back to our Norway food habits (eat in moderation!)

We ate this as the main course~ but it definitely would make a wonderful accompaniment to chicken or steak on the grill. With all of this FREE time on my hands~ I’m looking forward to a nice LONG stretch of home cooked food!

Roasted Rustic Salad

  • 4 small red skinned potatoes, chopped into bit size pieces
  • 1 head broccoli, chopped into bite size pieces
  • 1 head cauliflower, chopped into bite size pieces
  • 5-10 heirloom tomatoes (different colors is pretty!)
  • 3 Tbsp olive oil, divided
  • ½ Tbsp Cajun seasoning
  • Pepper
  • 1 lemon
  • 6-8 sage leaves, finely minced

This would also be good with garlic cloves, pearl onions, and peppers.

Preheat oven to 400. Line a large cookie sheet/jelly roll pan with aluminum foil. In a large bowl, toss the potatoes, broccoli, and cauliflower with 2 Tbsp of olive oil & the Cajun seasoning. Spread the mixture on the cookie sheet & put in the oven.

Set the timer to 30 minutes. Stir the mixture at about the 20-minute mark.  When thirty minutes has passed, add the tomatoes to the mixture & bake for another 10-20 minutes until the tomatoes have burst and everything looks roasted & crispy!

While the mixture is roasting, go back to the original (now empty) bowl. Add in approx 1 Tbsp olive oil, the juice of one lemon, and the finely minced sage leaves. Stir. When the hot veggies/potatoes come out the oven, dump them back into the bowl & toss. Serve warm. YUM!!!

Look at that gorgeous tomato!! I LOVE it! So YUMMY.
