Roasted Carrot and Feta Salad Recipe

Roasted carrot and feta salad from Cheap Recipe Blog

Welcome to Carrot Week 2013! We’re paying homage to the humble carrot, a vegetable that is often overlooked in simmering pots of soup and on mixed vegetable trays.

This week, we’re giving carrots the attention they deserve. Front and center.

This carrot recipe is the first in a series of three for Carrot Week. Be sure to check back later in the week for two other cheap carrot recipes. Like my Facebook page to get recipe notifications.

About The Recipe

This recipe is delicious in its simplicity. Carrots are naturally sweet, and turn into something amazing when roasted in the oven. Feta is tangy and flavorful. The combination of carrots and Feta is a classic one, and this salad needs nothing more.

The Cost

Carrots are consistently among the cheapest vegetables in the supermarket. And they’re also one of the most versatile. Here’s what I paid for this salad:

  • 2 lb. bag carrots: $1.98
  • 1/2 cup Feta cheese (I got mine from the grocery store salad bar): $.25
  • Olive oil: $.20

Total cost: $2.43 for four servings

Roasted Carrot and Feta Salad Recipe

Yield: 4 servings

Prep Time: 30 min

Carrots take a long time to soften and brown in the oven. Be patient. The soft, caramelized carrots are well worth the wait!

Ingredients:

2 pounds carrots
1/2 cup Feta cheese
3 tablespoons olive oil
Salt and pepper, to taste

Directions:

Wash and peel carrots. Cut carrots into coins about 1/4-inch wide each.
Preheat oven to 425F. Toss carrots with olive oil, salt, and pepper. Place onto a large baking sheet. Bake for approximately 30 to 40 minutes, or until carrots and softened and lightly browned in spots. Remove from oven and allow to cool.
Combine carrots and Feta in a serving bowl. Add a bit more olive oil if desired. Serve cold.

    yum! this sounds really great. I don’t cook carrots that often because it seems like they’re always too sweet with honey or whatever, but I think I’d be into this!
