Easy Roasted Fall Vegetable Salad with Hummus and Feta

Good Morning!

On Sunday afternoon, I did some experimenting in the kitchen and what resulted was a delicious fall salad that I’ve been enjoying every day this week for lunch. The beauty of this salad is that it can be customized based on the season and what you have on hand. And, it can be prepared in just about 30 minutes and holds up well for easy weekday eating.
