Roasted beets, walnuts, orange dressing, and goat cheese make a great combination. Try it with almond cheese if you want it to be Paleo or vegetarian.
Beets have tons of health benefits as they’re full of vitamins and minerals, such as Vitamin C and folate, that help detox, fight inflammation, and lower blood pressure.
It works as a side salad or as a light lunch.
Beet Salad With Orange Dressing
Heat oven to 400°F. Wrap each beet in foil and roast for 45-60 minutes or until soft. When cool, peel off the skins and chop into small wedges. Place in a bowl.
To make the vinaigrette: in a small bowl, whisk the orange juice, honey, vinegar, olive oil, mustard, and salt.
In a small skillet, brown the walnuts over low heat (about 5 minutes). Add a tablespoon of honey or maple syrup and toss until coated and slightly crispy (be careful not to burn). Remove from pan and set aside to cool.
Combine beets, vinaigrette, salad greens, and nuts and serve immediately.
