Art Smith uses a mix of roasted root vegetables, such as the beets, turnips, parsnips and celery root here, to make a delicious salad in colder months. His vinaigrette, made with fresh orange juice, shallot and white balsamic vinegar, is equally wintry.

2 medium golden beets ( 3/4 pound), peeled and cut into 1/2-inch chunks
2 medium turnips ( 3/4 pound), peeled and cut into 1/2-inch chunks
2 parsnips ( 3/4 pound), peeled and cut into 1/2-inch chunks
1 celery root (1 pound), peeled and cut into 1/2-inch chunks
1 1/2 teaspoons chopped rosemary
1/4 cup plus 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
1 tablespoon minced shallot
2 tablespoons fresh orange juice
1 1/2 tablespoons white balsamic vinegar
1/2 teaspoon honey
3 cups packed mizuna
How to Make It
Preheat the oven to 400°. Put the beets and turnips on one large rimmed baking sheet and the parsnips and celery root on another. Sprinkle with the rosemary and drizzle 1 1/2 tablespoons of the olive oil over each pan of vegetables; toss well. Arrange the vegetables in an even layer and season with salt and pepper. Bake in the upper and lower thirds of the oven for about 35 minutes, until the vegetables are tender and golden brown. Switch the pans halfway through baking. Let cool slightly.
In a bowl, mix the remaining 1/4 cup of olive oil with the shallot, orange juice, vinegar and honey and season with salt and pepper.
Transfer the roasted vegetables to a medium bowl. Add the vinaigrette and mizuna, toss well and serve.
