Dressing (make just before you are ready to assemble the salad):

  2. Bring to a boil and simmer for 1 minute. Remove from heat.
  3. Stir in the mayonnaise and salt.
  4. Keep warm until ready to pour on salad.


  1. Heat oven to 400 F.
  2. Place chopped vegetables on a baking sheet. Drizzle with olive oil and salt. Stir to coat.
  3. Roast in preheated oven for 45 minutes – 1 hour, until the desired doneness.
  4. In a large bowl combine the chopped greens and half of the warm dressing. Toss to coat and wilt greens.
  5. Add the roasted vegetables and the other half of the dressing. Toss to coat.
  6. Add avocado, bacon, and/or nuts and gently toss.
