Roasted Salad Towers

Grilled Vegetable Towers (19)-3

I’m all for chowing down on a fresh salad at any time of the day, but when the temperature drops and no amount of hot showers can warm me up, I’d rather drown myself in a warm bowl of veggies and an afternoon nap than chill out with a bowl of fresh veggies.

One of my favorite salads right now is preparing a bowlful of roasted veggies with balsamic dressing and mashed goat cheese. It’s so darn good I could eat it all day… but it aint pretty. If I saw someone eating it, I would judge them. Heck, I would think that they were eating dog scraps. So, in an attempt to introduce my favorite meal to the world, I prettied everything up, layered it nicely, and took pictures of my otherwise less-than-photogenic daily salad.

It looks good, it tastes good, you could serve it to friends and wow them with your mad kitchen skillz… but you better believe the next time I’m caught eating this salad, it’ll be in a bowl all mashed up and as ugly as ever.

LOL about the unpretty factor. You should see the ‘omelette’ I’m eating right now…. dog scraps probably look more appetizing!! I’m the same as you when it comes to the big veggie bowl – right now, steamed with balsamic is where it’s at!

I love caprese salads & my mom used to make warm salad dressings when I was growing up. This is like the perfect marriage of both those things!

What an elegant way to present something that otherwise looks like dog food! I’m so with you on that though, whenever my friends some over and I happen to be eating, I have to explain to them, “no, that isn’t for my cat, it actually tastes great. Etc., etc.” Warm salads are becoming quite the norm around here lately as well, no matter how refreshing a fresh salad is, I just want to be warm!

I’m so happy to hear that I’m not the only one! At least you don’t have to worry about your friends stealing your food!

Ha! Roasted veggies mashed up with goat cheese sounds pretty darn good to me but I like your pretty stacked version as well.
