Roast Vegetable & Goats Cheese Salad (Gluten Free)

As the weather starts to gets a little warmer we start to bring back salads into our eating repertoire. It’s still a little cold though so I like to add roasted vegetables to the mix to the warm things up a bit or add a spice with chilli if you like. I love roasted red peppers because of their sweet taste and their high concentration of vitamins A, C and rich source of antioxidants. Antioxidants help prevent damage by free radicals to our cells. Their bright red colour shows their rich in the pigment beta-carotene, which is converted by your body to retinol, a form of vitamin A, during the digestive process. Vitamin A is important for eye health and maintaining healthy skin, membranes and soft tissue. Vitamin C provides support for your immune system and both vitamins A and C help your body repair itself after it has been injured.
