Autumn Beet Salad

This salad is wonderful.  I promise all those non-beet eaters out there you'll love it!

Here are the ingredients: 
        • Roasted beet slices
        • Red leaf lettuce
        • Romaine Lettuce
        • White Onion Rings
        • Toasted Walnuts
        • Soft, creamy goat cheese
        • Your favorite vinaigrette

To roast the beets:

Wash the beets and cut off both ends.  Discard the leaves.  Wrap the beets in aluminum foil and place directly on the rack of a 350° F pre-heated oven.  Bake for 1 hour and 15 minutes.  Remove from the oven and let them cool on the sink for 15 minutes.  Remove aluminum foil and rub off the skin under running water.  Slice into rounds.

Try Feta cheese, or Blue cheese to change it up . . . And pecans instead of walnuts . . .

Try it.  You'll like it!

Long time, no see my friend. Like that styling pedi you had in your last post and as for beets - I am a BIG fan - would probably go with feta rather than goat's cheese - but sounds delicious.

Hmmm...speaking of non-beet eaters...I am guilty! My father LOVED beets and we had to eat them--cold, warm, those little harvard beet balls, and so many other ways, including soup...and my sisters and I tried everything to avoid them. Now I eat a few pickled beets, but I don't think I have ever actually purchased a beet at the grocer or farm! But, this recipe actually loves delicious to me! I will try it, and maybe I will be a convert. I certainly love the other ingredients and it looks very refreshing. I know beets are very good for me, and I'm always short on iron. So nice to see your post, Maria! Hope you are well. Linda

Beets, love them in a salad. Used to eat beat greens with vinegar growing up. Looks like a great salad. Joni


Oh wow, amiguita, mucho te extrañe!! I'm loving this beet salad, very different. We, Latins love beet salad and yours reminded me of such, except with the twist of walnuts in it..terrific! Thanks for your sweet visit, so happy to see you around.
Big hugs,

That sounds good to me but I don't think I could ever get Bob to try it.
