Delicious Beet Salad Recipe

As a kid I always thought I despised beets.  The first few years John and I were married he always put beets on his salad whenever we were at a salad bar and I though it was disgusting. lol!  Well fast forward a few years and I have gotten older and wiser…and now I’m sad I missed out on all of those years of beet eating. 😉 . I seriously can’t get enough of them.  I LOVE a good beet salad, and this recipe couldn’t be easier.  Check out this delicious beet salad recipe that you can make in minutes.

I’ll be the first to admit that when I can be…I’m lazy in the kitchen.  I want to make things that are delicious and EASY.  If I can buy ingredients that are pre-made to make life a bit easier, I will.  That’s one of the reasons I love this delicious beet salad so much.  Here’s what you’ll need to make this salad:


-Roasted Beets ( you can roast your own, or if you want to be lazy like I am, you can pick up freshly roasted and peeled beets in the refrigerator section of Trader Joe’s.  That’s what I use.  Then, all you have to do is slice them up for the salad.  WINNING!)

-Goat Cheese (I pick this up at Trader Joe’s in the cheese section too.  You can crumble it easily yourself over the top of the salad)

-Candied Walnuts (Again, you can candy your own, or you can buy a bag of already prepared candied walnuts…guess what I do usually? ;))

-A bag of mixed greens

-Dressing (this simple recipe is good on so many salads!)

  • 1/4 c. balsamic vinegar
  • 1/4 c. extra viirgin olive oil
  • 1 TBS honey
  • 1 tsp. Dijon mustard
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

In a bowl add your mixed greens and sliced beets.  Toss in the dressing and mix all together well.  Sprinkle in candied walnuts and goat cheese (I add a liberal amount, but you can add as much as you like). Toss lightly.  When you serve the salad I like to add a a few more nuts and a bit of extra cheese on top.
