Roasted Golden Beet & Blue Goat Cheese Salad

Roasted Golden Beet & Goat Blue Salad

I am a salad freak. If I go a day without my greens, I’m just not a happy girl. This salad really satisfies my jones for greens and another love- beets. I love red ones, golden ones, big ones, baby ones, and those beautiful stripey white and pink ones called Chioggias.

This salad is so simple and can be plated in such a way that it looks super fancy, which is a big plus! I recently served this salad aside Pork Chops topped with a fig reduction and a lovely parsnip puree, but it could easily be served in a bigger portion as a meal.

    Looks delicious. I am the same way with the salads, I have to have it. When I go on volunteer trips to South America where we can not really trust the water that veggies are washed, we go on a potato-corn-bread diet. When I get back, the first thing I do is to eat salad everyday for every meal for a week!
    Need to look for that pork chops with fig reduction recipe!

    this is probably one of my favorite salad combos — beets + goat cheese. delish. but i might have to hunt down some blood orange olive oil and try the vinaigrette. where can you get stonehouse?!

    p.s. it was great meeting you @ foodbuzz fest!
