This warm and hearty salad brings all the Autumn feels with it! It is filled with roasted veggies, quinoa, creamy cheese, and tossed in a roasted garlic maple dressing. I like to roast extra veggies when I make this so I can make it throughout the week or use the roasted veggies in other meals.

This would be a delicious salad to bring to Thanksgiving dinner. If serving it on its own, you could add chicken or tofu for some extra protein. I also like adding hemp hearts to my salads for an extra boost!
