Work from Home Lunch: Roasted Root Veggie Salad with Arugula Pesto

Yesterday I posted my recipe for Roasted Root Veggies, which is a great meal prep option if you have a bunch of fun root veggies (turnips, radishes, beets, and potatoes) from your garden, market, or CSA box.  Today I wanted to post a salad that I made with my leftovers, along with some leftover Arugula Pesto as the dressing.  These flavors all work great together and really maximize the most of the flavors of the fall/winter season. 

If you haven’t made the two recipes mentioned above, follow the links here:
