Roasted Vegetable Salad with Chicken

It started as a whim. I got the idea to roast some Brussel Sprouts, Parsnips and Carrots I wanted to use up for a quick dinner one night. I also made some chicken and it turned out rather tasty. My hubby was not around for dinner so I had a bunch left over. I got  the idea to throw it over some salad greens for lunch the next day. Wow was that a good idea. I tossed it with a White Balsamic dressing and it was ON! I tell you it was such a good salad. Give it a go! :) I have to dedicate  this recipe to my dear friend Kristen who made me give Brussel Sprouts a chance all those years ago. I may add some craisins next time as well, maybe some almonds. Hmmm.
