For the Salad:

Step 1

To roast vegetables, toss together asparagus, scallions, radishes, carrots, beets, butter, salt and pepper in large bowl until fully combined. Pour onto baking sheet and give it a shake to arrange the veggies in a single layer. Roast until soft and evenly browned, about 15 to 20 minutes.

To assemble salad, place lettuce in large bowl or platter. Arrange roasted veggies, hard boiled eggs, diced avocado and crumbled cheese in columns over lettuce, like a classic Cobb salad.
