Roasting brings out the sweetness in the root vegetables to make them the perfect pair to the warm of garlic and scallions and the bright tang of lemon. If you like a little more spice on your plate, kick the heat up a notch with a little hot sauce. This salad is inexpensive and stores well, so making a double batch to have plenty of leftovers for lunches is a smart idea.
