Roasted Veggie and Kale Salad

I have been so into kale salads lately and creating homemade dressings. This combination is absolutely mouth-watering and super easy to throw together. I did harvest fresh carrots from my garden which were incredible, but store-bought carrots will also taste delicious ๐Ÿ™‚ Enjoy this simple salad recipe, and feel free to swap in your personal favorite veggies!

How pretty are these roasted veggies??
