One of my favourite ways to show off fresh produce is in a salad - but since it's now September and the weather's getting cooler, I don't always feel like eating a big plateful of cold, raw vegetables. So instead, I made a warm salad with roasted carrots and onions.
I served the veg on a bed of greens, and topped it all with some soft goat's cheese and walnuts - which are a match made in heaven, and really add to the autumnal feel of the dish. Some roasted chickpeas added a hit of protein, and also helped to make the dish feel hearty and filling enough for a cold evening.
I really loved the combination of the earthy roasted vegetables with the soft and tangy cheese, and the walnuts gave a great occasional crunch. You can, of course, mix up the salad with whatever autumnal vegetables you have to hand - roasted parsnips, beetroot and leeks would all be delicious too!
