beet salad

I love a good salad! I am also on a goat cheese kick at the moment 😉 . It’s so tasty and it adds flavour to everything, especially this beet salad. I love a nice roasted beet but the weather is way to hot to turn the oven on for over an hour. So I just boiled the beets instead. If you have any nuts on hand like pine nuts or walnuts you can throw those in as well, I just happened to be out today. I hope everyone is out enjoying this beautiful sunshine at a lake or park. Summer is the best time of year, especially when you get to relive it thru the eyes of your child. My little boy turned 5 today….where does the time go?!


Beet and Goat Cheese Feta Salad
Recipe type: salad
Cuisine: gluten free, vegetarian
  • ½ box of spring mix
  • 3 tbs of goat cheese feta
  • 2 beets peeled and sliced into fourths
  • 2 tbs olive oil
  • 1 tbs balsamic vinegar
  • 3 tbs of nuts - pine or walnut (optional)
  1. After you peel and trim the ends of the beets, boil them over the stove for around 30 min. When they are easy to pierce with your fork, drain them and let them cool. If you want to speed this up, you can put them in the fridge for a few minutes.
  2. Once the beets are cool, toss the lettuce and beets, nuts and cheese together.
  3. Mix together the oil and vinegar together and drizzle over the salad.
  4. Serve and enjoy.
