Step 1

Preheat oven to 450°.

Step 2

Combine carrot, oil, and 1/4 teaspoon salt on a jelly-roll pan coated with cooking spray; toss to coat. Bake at 450° for 15 minutes or until tender.

Recommend adding avocado!

Used raisins instead of grapes and added avocado. Great mix of flavor and texture. I omitted the chicken and did not serve with a green salad, instead as a side to grilled steak and zucchini. It was great as a side dish!

I loved the grapes and toasted almonds in this dish! Easy to make and was great for lunch today. I thought the dressing was a little thick and quinoa mix didn't really go with the greens well.
