Roasted Baby Carrot Salad
- 2 Tbsp olive oil
- 2 Tbsp liquid honey
- 1 lemon juice and grated zest
- ½ tsp sea salt
- ½ tsp smoked paprika
- 500 g baby carrots (approx 2 bunches)
- 100 g mixed salad leaves
- 100 g goat’s cheese, sliced
- 8-10 fresh mint leaves, roughly chopped
Preheat the oven to 175ºC. To make the dressing, mix together the olive oil, honey, lemon juice and zest, salt and paprika in a jar and shake well to combine.
Trim the green leaves from the baby carrots and peel them. Cut larger carrots in half lengthways.
Place the carrots in a bowl and toss through half of the dressing. Place the carrots on a baking-paper-lined tray and roast them in the preheated oven for 15-20 minutes until they are tender and golden.
Arrange the salad leaves on a serving platter, top them with the warm roasted carrots and scatter over the goat’s cheese slices. Pour over the remaining dressing and garnish with the chopped mint to serve.
