Autumn Beet Salad

Beets are such a nutrient dense root vegetable, I always feel like I’m nourishing my body well when I add them to my diet.

 

 

I’ve been craving them a lot lately, especially on salads. I’ve been particularly enjoying the vinegar marinated Love Beets on salads with carrots, cucumber, and olives, and topped with Tessemae’s Lemon Garlic dressing.

 

 

I always love salads with beets and goat cheese, so I decided to make a simple, yet flavorful salad for fall with roasted beets, goat cheese, pomegranate seeds, and walnuts.

 

 

I topped this salad with my favorite homemade dressing, which is so simple to make. All I do is combine olive oil and fig balsamic vinegar and shake it up. It’s my go-to dressing for winter salads that use fruit, nuts, and goat cheese.

 

 

I sprinkled a pinch of our coarse French Grey Sea Salt on top immediately before serving, for a pop of flavor and texture. This is a perfect finishing salt, and is a great complement to the ingredients in this salad.

This salad was delicious, and would be the perfect side dish to any Autumn or Winter dinners. I would serve this along side a roast of your choosing.

This flavorful salad is perfect for fall. Roasted beets add earthy flavor, and a touch of sweetness that is enhanced by the addition of pomegranate seeds and fig balsamic dressing.

Ingredients

Process

Note, these instructions are written assuming the standard serving size, since you have modified the number of servings, these steps may need to be modified for best results
  1. Preheat your oven to 450 degrees.
  2. Rinse your beets under cool water, and then trim the beet greens close to the beet.
  3. Dry the beets, and place on a parchment or foil lined baking sheet.
  4. Cover the beets with parchment to seal, or foil. Keeping the beets sealed will allow them to steam while baking so that the skin peels easily when they are finished cooking.
  5. Roast the beets for 45 minutes to an hour, or until they are fork tender.
  6. Allow the beets to cool to the touch, and then peel the skin from the beets with your hands. Some stubborn bits may need to be removed with a paring knife.
  7. Slice the beets thinly, and set aside to cool to room temperature.
  8. Plate two servings of mixed salad greens.
  9. Top the salad greens with chopped raw walnuts, pomegranate seeds, and the beet slices.
  10. Top the salads with goat cheese.
  11. In a small mason jar, shake the olive oil and fig balsamic to combine, and then drizzle over the salads.
  12. Garnish the salads with a pinch of French Gray Finishing Salt if desired.
