Evenly divide Ready Pac Foods® Milano Salad onto four plates. Top each salad with roasted asparagus, carrots, zucchini, potatoes and Ready Pac Foods® Sliced Peppers and Onion. Sprinkle Ocean Spray® Craisins® Original Sweetened Dried Cranberries over vegetables before drizzling with desired amount of dressing.

In bowl, whisk together vinegar, mustard, basil, salt, garlic and pepper. Slowly whisk in oil and beat vigorously until well blended.

Preparation Suggestion: Roasting vegetables is easy! Once the vegetables are cut, lightly oil and season with fresh herbs. Roast in a single layer on a foil-lined baking sheet at 450ºF until tender.
