March is National Nutrition Month and one simple way to focus on nutrition is to add more fruits and vegetables to your plate. It’s also a great way to add color, flavor, and texture plus vitamins, minerals and dietary fiber.

Oven-roasting vegetables takes little effort and adds a savory depth of flavor. One unique way to use your roasted veggies is by making them the basis of a warm and hearty salad.
