Roasted Vegetable Salad with Almond Turmeric Dressing

When it comes to food waste, I am definitely trying to hold myself accountable for how much of my food goes into the garbage. We all know that there are some weeks where we just completely forget about some of the food that we shopped for and he ends up going bad right before our eyes. This recipe has always helped me to use some of the produce that was going bad and I was able to turn it into a bright and flavorful salad. In addition to its delicious taste, this salad seems to always remind me of summer, therefore I try to make it whenever it’s gloomy and cold outside, just so I can brighten up a little bit.
