As spring makes its way here (eventually!), we see more colorful ingredients make their way onto our plate. These rainbow carrots are no exception! They are tasty and bright--making them the perfect compliment to any dish.

2 TBSP. Kosterina extra-virgin olive oil

1 tsp. (packed) finely grated orange peel

  1. Preheat oven to 375°F. Cut the carrots in half and arrange them in single layer on rimmed baking sheet. Add 2 tablespoons Kosterina olive oil and orange peel; sprinkle with salt and pepper and toss.
  2. Roast until tender, about 30 minutes.
  3. Transfer carrots and any juices to platter. Drizzle with some of the orange vinaigrette while they are still warm and serve.
