Beet Salad Recipe

This salad is super simple to make and layer up. Instead of making a big bowl where we may or may not eat it all and then things get soggy, I like to make my family individual, pretty salad plates. Each is just the right size for them.

Start by adding washed, spun dry mixed greens to a plate or salad bowl.

Roasted Beet Salad Recipe

Next, add the the sliced beets.  If you buy the pre-cooked ones form Costco like we do, this step has been done for you. But if not, no worries it is easy to do; but you have to plan ahead.  To cook the beets yourself there are two main methods I’ll share with you:

  • Peel the beets with a vegetable peeler or knife. Slice beets into ½ to ¾ inch uniform pieces. Put beets on a parchment paper lined cookie sheet. Brush beets with with  oil a so they are evenly coated. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Pre-heat oven on 350 degrees. Bake for 25-30 minutes.
  • Roasted Beets us just the term to describe how you can cook beets to get them soft and ready to eat! Wash beets and trim the top and bottom. Put in foil packet and bake at 375 F for 1 hour. Remove from oven and once cool enough to handle the outer shell will easily be pushed off. Slice and add to your salad.
  • FYI…. handling beets can stain your hands red for a day or so.

Now add sliced pears (we use this convenient pear slicer) and then sprinkle with goat cheese crumbles.

I never thought I liked goat cheest, but once I tried it I was hooked! It has such a creamy and distinct flavor.

Fall Salad Recipes

Sprinkle with candied walnuts. You can buy these already ready to go or you can easily make them yourself buy putting 1/4 cup of granulated sugar, honey, or maple syrup in a non-stick frying pan over medium heat. Add in chopped walnuts when the sugar has liquified and stir for 1-2 minutes to completely coat the walnuts. Pour onto parchment paper to cool and harden before adding to your salad.

Poppyseed Dressing Recipe

Finally drizzle with poppy seed dressing. When my days are crazy, I really like Briannas Poppyseed Dressing (the one with the giant peach on it). But if I have time, it is really simple to make homemade poppyseed salad dressing!

  • ½ cup white vinegar
  • ⅓ cup white sugar
  • 1 teaspoon grated onion
  • 1 teaspoon ground dry mustard
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 tablespoon poppy seeds

This Salad is not only delicious, but super pretty too. I love the bright red and how it contrasts with the white of the goat cheese and pretty greens.

Beetroot and Orange Salad

Take your salad to the next level try adding mandarin orange slices (drained from a can), swapping out feta cheese for the goat cheese, or using candied beets.

To candy beets simply put sugar, honey, or maple syrup in a non-stick skillet (this is pan I use and LOVE) and add beets. Toss as you cook over medium heat until a sticky, golden shell forms around the beats. Cool before adding to your salad.  The addition of candying your vegetable makes a sweet, satisfying addition to your salad. I love the toasted outsides to give a little texture to my salad.
