INcredible recipe! Just had to double the dressing. Would definetely make again. Mother tested, kid approved.
It needs a little more salt and double the dressing. I roasted a squash, zucchini, and onion at 425 for 20 minutes instead of the raw veggies. Omitted the cucumber. It is delicious.
Excellent mixture of textures. I did add more olive oil and lemon juice for flavor.
This is awesome! It does make a lot - perfect for main dish but if you're planning to serve as a side, it will stretch further.
