2 medium-size red onions
2 beets, peeled
2 parsnips, peeled
1 medium butternut squash, peeled and seeded
3 tablespoons olive oil, divided
1 teaspoon salt, divided
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper, divided
2 tablespoons maple syrup
6 cups torn mixed salad greens
1/4 cup walnuts, coarsely chopped and toasted


Cut first 4 ingredients into 1-inch cubes. Line 2 (13- x 9-inch) baking pans with aluminum foil.

Toss together onions, beets, 1 tablespoon olive oil, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper in one lined pan, and set aside.

Toss together parsnips, squash, remaining 2 tablespoons oil, remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt, remaining 1/4 teaspoon pepper, and maple syrup in empty lined pan.

Bake both pans at 350° for 45 minutes or until vegetables are tender, shielding with aluminum foil, if necessary, to avoid excessive browning.

Combine all baked vegetables. Add salad greens, and toss. Arrange on a serving platter, and sprinkle with walnuts. Serve immediately.
