I’m obsessed with this salad at the moment, the combination of the sweet roasted vegetables, with crunchy shredded lettuce and a creamy hummus dressing is really sensational! One of my all time favourite sandwich combinations is roasted vegetables and hummus, so making these flavours into a fresh salad was always going to be awesome. This hummus dressing is such a winner, i could literally drink a cup of it, it’s that delicious. I’m such a hummus fiend so it’s great to have this flavour running through the whole salad instead of just a dollop on the side!
This is such an easy meal to make, really satisfying and really sweet and comforting. This is my go to salad when I’m after a light meal, that makes me feel great!
2 baby gem lettuce
1 avocado, cubed
2 red pepper
1 yellow pepper
1 red onion
a dozen cherry tomatoes
2 sweet potatoes, pealed and cubed (optional)
1 tbsp hummus
2 tbsp olive oil
Juice 1 lemon
1 tsp tamari
2 tsp maple syrup
Preheat the oven to 190 degrees celcius.
Start by chopping the red pepper, yellow pepper, red onion and courgettes into medium sized chunks, and chop the tomatoes in half. (If using sweet potatoes, prepare now). Place on a roasting tray, drizzle with olive oil and a pinch of salt and roast for around 45 minutes.
Meanwhile, shred the baby gem lettuce chopping finely from the end, and place into a bowl.
Make the dressing by mixing all ingredients together until smooth.
When the vegetables are well roasting place in the salad bowl with the shaved lettuce and the hummus dressing, toss well and serve topped with avocado.
