Wednesday evenings are always fun as we open our veggie delivery to see what goodies have arrived for the week. I was very pleased to see some fresh beets in a recent delivery. I love the earthy, subtle flavor of beets and I have never met a beet salad on a menu that I passed up!
Before we left on our Staycation (photos to come soon!), I roasted the beets and stuck them in the fridge and am now enjoying all the wonderful ways to eat this beautiful, tasty root vegetable. Beets are low in calories and high in fiber, vitamin C, B vitamins, iron, and folate. You can read more about beet nutrition here.
How do you cook them?
For this salad, I sliced the beets, sprinkled them with a very good goat cheese, walnuts, a good balsamic glaze, salt and pepper and served them on a bed of baby spinach.
