Roasted Vegetable 

with Ranch Dressing

Directions

Preheat oven to 400F.

Ranch Dressing

Add the vinegar, salt & sugar to a small mixing bowl and whisk to dissolve.  Add the remaining ingredients and whisk until smooth.

Roasted Vegetables

Place all vegetables in a large bowl drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper.  Pour out onto a large baking sheet lined with parchment paper and spread out.  

 

Place in the oven on the center rack and place the corn on the rack below it. Roast for 25-30 minutes until the potatoes and carrots are tender and nicely caramelized.   Remove everything from the oven and let cool. Remove the husks and silks and slice off the corn, using a sharp knife.  

 

Arrange all the vegetables onto a platter, season with more salt & pepper if needed and add the toppings. Drizzle with the Ranch dressing and serve.
