Coat a foil-lined baking sheet with cooking spray. Place beets, carrots, and parsnips on baking sheet. Drizzle evenly with 1 tsp (5 mL) canola oil and toss gently, yet thoroughly, to coat lightly.

Arrange vegetables in a single layer and bake 10 minutes; stir and bake an additional 7 minutes or until beets are just tender when pierced with a fork. Remove from heat and let stand to cool slightly, about 10 minutes.

Combine vinaigrette ingredients in a small jar, secure lid, and shake well to blend thoroughly.

Arrange equal amounts of salad greens on four salad plates. In the following order, top with equal amounts of onion, roasted vegetables, raisins, and pecans. Spoon vinaigrette evenly over all. Serve immediately for peak flavors.
