Sausage and Vegetable Salad

My weekend was both fun and exhausting ๐Ÿ™‚ We said goodbye to the beautiful weather for a little while, now its back to jeans and boots…c’mon Summer! I got to spend time with my best friend who I never get to see, we went and got pedi’s…probably the greatest feeling ever after a long winter of no TLC towards to feet! We also got to take our little guy to Maple Syrup Sunday…yesss here in Maine, that’s a holiday haha We got Maple Syrup cotton candy, maple syrup butter, maple syrup ice cream, and obviously, PURE Maple Syrup…it was fabulously sweet! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Needless to say after all that sugar we needed something a little more savory! Well this warm Sausage and Vegetable Salad was just the ticket and I made a dressing to go with it, but honestly it doesn’t really need it if you’re not into that. The spicy sausage against the roasted vegetables stop a beautiful bed of arugula and fresh spinach…mmm it was flippin’ amazing! You could totally eliminate the sausage if you’re looking to make this a little more waist friendly or vegetarian, you could use chicken sausage instead..whatever your little heart desires!

This was easy, quick, and absolutely divine…I highly advise you to make this soon! Its a perfect weeknight meal, or light summer salad to grace any cookout or party! Make it, love it, ENJOY!
