Roasted Beetroot & Carrot Salad with Chèvre

Autumn (fall) has just arrived in Melbourne, and with the changing of seasons comes a change in produce. I love the ‘seasonal crossover’. The tastes and textures of food go from cool, crisp and fresh, to a warmer, richer, more earthier tone (or the opposite for all my international friends).

Some of my favourite autumnal foods are root vegetables. I love their versatility and ‘never fail’ factor. Whether a trusty addition to soups, the perfect roast side dish, or a warming ingredient to an autumn salad.

Todays Roasted Beetroot and Carrot salad recipe is a delicious combination of earthy root vegetables, peppery rocket and creamy chèvre. It’s the perfect 'seasonal crossover’ dish... summer salad, meets autumnal warmth. Lovely!

What’s your favourite autumn / spring dish?
