Roasted Beet Salad

I’m not quite sure what all the fuss is about beets. They have a beautiful, earthy flavor and are packed full of nutrients such as folate, potassium and fiber.

To make them the star of this salad, I simply roasted a golden and red beet, with skins on, drizzled with oil, at 400F until tender.

After roasting, I let them cool, then peel the skins off. Chop them into bite sized pieces and add other salad ingredients to your liking. I had some local goat cheese on hand, so I used that along with diced yellow peppers. I dressed the salad with a simple olive oil/balsamic dressing. Serve with a nice piece of warm bread and butter.
