Steamed Vegetable Salad with Lemon Sesame Dressing

This steamed vegetable salad is a light, refreshing, and healthy meal.  Plus, it’s a quick and easy week night dinner.  If you cannot find different colored carrots, of course you can use all orange.  I just like the variety of colors.  Serve warm or cold, with a side of wheat berries, quinoa or slice roast chicken.  Leftovers make a great lunch the next day.

This baked chicken is easy and quick to prepare and bake.  Marinate the chicken in the morning, and it’s ready to bake in the evening.  If you forget to marinate the chicken, you can still season and bake it immediately.  Serve this with steamed broccoli and carrots seasoned with sea salt.
