1.) Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit and lightly oil a cookie sheet.

2.) In a large bowl combine: 1/2 cup olive oil, honey, mustard, hot sauce, basil, oregano, balsamic vinegar, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/2 teaspoon black pepper. Whisk to thoroughly combine, cover with plastic wrap, and set aside so flavours can marry.

3.) In a single layer on the cookie sheet, spread out: tomato wedges, onion wedges, asparagus tips, orange bell pepper, and red bell pepper. Drizzle 3 tablespoons olive oil over the vegetables and turn to stir and coat the vegetables entirely with oil. Sprinkle generously with 1 teaspoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon black pepper. Place the baking sheet in the oven and roast for 30 – 40 minutes, until vegetables have just started to brown. Remove cookie sheet from oven and using tongs or a slotted spoon, transfer veggies to a large bowl.

4.) Whisk dressing once more to stir and pour over vegetables. Stir to thoroughly combine and top with toasted sesame seeds.

5.) Serve and enjoy!
