Roasted Vegetable Grain Salad with Hard-Cooked Eggs

Amy Palanjian | Delicious Living

Loaded with protein and fiber, this salad is as filling as it is colorful. Pair it with White Balsamic Dressing for maximum flavor. 

(gluten free, vegetarian, staff favorite)

  1. Prepare quinoa according to package directions, and set aside to cool.
  2. Put eggs into a medium pot; cover with 2 inches of water. Bring to a rapid boil. Remove from heat, cover and let sit for 15 minutes. Drain, and place eggs into an ice bath to chill. When fully cooled, peel, slice in half and set aside.
  3. Preheat oven to 425°. In a bowl, toss together vegetables, olive oil and salt, and spread vegetables on a rimmed baking sheet. Bake for 25–30 minutes, or until vegetables are starting to brown and are soft when poked with a fork; remove from oven.
  4. Divide ingredients into four bowls, or refrigerate salad components separately and assemble when ready to eat. Drizzle 2 tablespoons dressing over each salad.

White Balsamic Dressing

In a screw-top jar, shake together ⅓ cup white balsamic vinegar, ½ cup extra-virgin olive oil, ½ teaspoon Dijon mustard, 1 teaspoon honey and ¼ teaspoon salt. Refrigerate with lid on for up to 3 days. Makes 1 cup.
