Warm Roasted Turnip Salad

Carrots, turnips, and radicchio wedges get roasted on a single sheet tray for about 30 minutes until the root vegetables start to caramelize. Cover your sheet tray in a layer of foil for easy cleanup. The turnips remain spicy, the carrots turn out tender and sweet, and the radicchio is charred and slightly bitter. There’s crunch from chopped toasted walnuts and pungent creaminess from the blue cheese. A drizzle of balsamic vinegar ties the entire side together. All in all, the flavors at work in this dish are complex and interesting. It's a hearty recipe that would go quite well with steak or lamb chops.
