Roasted Beet, Goat Cheese & Walnut Salad

I absolutely love getting Beet Salads when I'm out at restaurants but had never tried making one at home before. Since we have been going to the local farmers markets every weekend lately, I have been able to buy the most amazing local beets.

Beets from our local Farmers Market
You can always roast a bunch of beets ahead of time and keep in fridge. Then when you want to make a salad, just take them out and slice them up!

  • 2 Golden Beets
  • 2 Red Beets
  • Bag of Arugula (or Rocket)
  • 2 tbsp of Goat Cheese
  • 1/2 cup of walnuts
  • Dressing - Mix the following: Balsamic Vinaigrette (or Apple Cider Vinaigrette), Olive Oil, Honey, clove of Garlic, Salt, Pepper

Roasting Beets:
  1. Cut off top and bottom of beet
  2. Clean beets
  3. Place 1-2 beets in aluminum foil bags
  4. Place all bags on baking tray in oven (place additional foil on tray to prevent beet juice spilling)
  5. Bake for approx 45 min on 350F (will differ with size of beets)
  6. Ready to go with knife easily slides into beet
  7. Let cool 
  8. Slice into bite sized pieces\
  9. Enjoy on arugula with sprinkled walnuts and goat cheese

  1. Sounds wonderful!! I’ll have to try this on weight watchers :). I love spaghetti squash so I usually poke a hole in it and cook it in the microwave about ten minutes. That gets it half way done. Then I finish by roasting it cut side down in the oven because it has better flavor!! Pickup Lines Google Gravity Tricks I love you quotes Good Night Quotes
