Roasted Carrot Salad

Rated as 4.7 out of 5 Stars

"Inspired by an incredibly popular salad sold in a local award winning market here in Woodstock, VT. Since they don't give out the recipe, I had to figure it out on my own. But I (and others) believe that my version is infinitely better, and I'm sure you will agree. This light, fresh and healthy salad is perfect for summer days and presents well for BBQ's, potlucks, and dinner parties alike and it is guaranteed to impress and get rave reviews every time."

  1. Preheat an oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
  2. Combine the carrots, almonds, and garlic in a mixing bowl. Drizzle with the olive oil, then season to taste with salt and pepper. Spread out onto an ungreased baking sheet.
  3. Bake the carrots in the preheated oven until soft and the edges turn brown, about 30 minutes. Remove and allow to cool to room temperature.
  4. Once cool, return the carrots to the mixing bowl, and drizzle with honey and vinegar; toss until coated. Add the cranberries and blue cheese; toss again until evenly mixed. Combine with the arugula and serve immediately.


  • Cooks Note
  • Mix in arugula as needed per serving, as it will become wilted if allowed to sit in the carrot mixture too long.
  • Partner Tip
  • Reynolds® Aluminum foil can be used to keep food moist, cook it evenly, and make clean-up easier.

If I could give this 7 stars I would. This is so over the top yummy! Just from reading the recipe I knew it would be good so I made a huge batch for a potluck. It evaporated it was gone so fast...

This is a very delicious salad with a wonderful unique flavor, however I feel the blue cheese is much too strong and sharp for the delicateness of this salad. Next time I would use feta or goat...

So delicious. I did make some changes since I used what I already had in the house. Added roasted beets, used pecans instead of almonds, spinach instead of arugula, and goat cheese instead of ...
