Recipe

I love basically everything about this salad.  Sweet roasted beets and carrots, nutty farro, and a simple yogurt balsamic dressing that is delish. Personally I love to eat this salad warm, although it is delicious cold as well. And if you don't like beets, you can use any other root vegetable you like.  However I highly recommend giving the beets a chance.  They are really amazing roasted and add a great earthiness and sweetness to the salad. I had never had one until about three years ago and now I am a total convert and a bit of a beet addict.  For easier prep, I recommend making the roasted veggies and farro ahead of time.  Then just toss it together with the dressing, spinach, and herbs to serve.
