  1. Preheat oven to 425°F. Prepare 2 large baking sheet pans with parchment paper.
  2. Add the sweet potatoes, beets, 1 teaspoon of salt, the zaatar and ¼ cup of olive oil and mix well. Place in oven for 35 minutes or until crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside.
  3. In a jar add the remaining olive oil, the white wine vinegar, Tuscany spice blend and honey and shake well.
  4. In a salad bowl add the rest of the ingredients and the roasted ingredients when ready.
  5. Add dressing right before serving.
Notes & Tips:

Tuscany spice blend can be found in all spice shops in Israel and is one of the greatest bases to a salad dressing. The longer it sits in the vinegar the better it tastes. If you don’t live in Israel, you can find Tuscany spice blend, it has a different taste, but can still work.
