The arrival of winter doesn't mean that salads are off the menu here at the Farm. Over the winter our salads become heartier, like this one that is filled with sweet roasted root vegetables and peppery arugula.

1T olive or coconut oil
2-3 slices prosciutto or bacon
½ c slivered almonds

Preheat oven to 425f. Toss root vegetables with cider & oi. Season with salt & pepper, bake for 15 min, or until just browning.
While vegetables are roasting, combine all dressing ingredients in a blender & process until smooth.
