A hearty and filling meal that comes together in under 30 minutes, you better believe it! This salad features roasted carrots, balsamic vinegar, goat cheese, and parsley for a flavor-packed dish. A bed of crisp and delicate lettuce is the perfect base to make this salad into a meal. If you want a little more sustenance, serve this salad with a grilled chicken breast or some sauteed shrimp for a bit of lean protein.


  • 5 carrots
  • 1/2 cup parsley leaves
  • lettuce (sangria, cut into bite-sized pieces)
  • 4 slices goat cheese (1/2 cm. thick)
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • salt
  • ground black pepper


  1. Peel the carrots, cut lengthwise, then cut again to 3-millimeter strips. Roast on a griddle until slightly burned, 3 minutes on one side and 3 minutes on the other.
  2. Separately, mix the lettuce and parsley.
  3. For the dressing, mix all the ingredients, including salt and pepper to taste.
  4. To plate, place the carrots over the lettuce and pour the dressing on top.
  5. Heat the goat cheese on the griddle, 1 minute on each side. Place over the carrots and serve.

This carrot salad is beautiful and it tastes like it comes from a fancy restaurant. I make it when I can't get my kids to eat their vegetables. I love the simple ingredients. I drizzled in a little honey for sweetness and it made a delicious glaze. It would be good if you used a hint of maple syrup too.
