Roasted carrots with balsamic and arugula pesto is an healthy vegetarian salad. I love the sweet taste of the carrots glazed with balsamic vinegar paired the bitter of arugula. To obtain a perfect balance between these strong flavors a very good quality balsamic vinegar is mandatory, otherwise the taste will be too sour!
