Beet and Walnut Salad

beet and walnut salad

I like beets in a salad. I had a very nice one with cheese, beets and hazelnuts in one of the local restaurants lately. However, I bought a very large back of walnuts at Costco the other day, and I fancied using them in my supper tonight.

Beet and Walnut Salad (for two)

  • 2 cups salad greens (I used romaine)
  • 1/2 cup cooked beets (I used golden and red)
  • 1/4 cup toasted walnuts (baked at 350 for about 6 minutes)
  • 2-3 tablespoons goat cheese (or crumbled blue cheese)
  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

You can cook beets in about 40 minutes if you peel and slice them, drizzle a bit of oil and some salt on them, wrap them in aluminum foil and bake at 450F.

I find it very easy to mix oil and vinegar in a small jar, and shake it before pouring over the salad. You can also add herbs, such as oregano or basil and salt and pepper to the mix.

Thoughts, ideas, suggestions?
