Spinach Beet Salad

IMG_3206

One of my new favorite salads of this Summer is a Spinach Beet Salad.  I don’t have exact measurements but I basically mixed spinach, roasted beets chopped in quarters, chopped (hard) goat cheese, toasted almonds and an oil based or vinaigrette dressing and DONE!  It took me many years to start loving beets, maybe it was an acquired taste type of thing kind of like wine. And this was the first time I’ve actually roasted them (about 1 hour at 450 degrees F) but I really loved the result.  No, this recipe wouldn’t work for those who love 10 minute meals, unless you use canned beets, then I supposed this could be like a 5 minute meal.  😉  I’ve been eating HORRIBLY on this vacation.  When I go home, I’ll probably be eating this salad and any other salad I can come up for a whole month straight.

What are your current fave salads?  If you can provide me links, all the better, pretty please! 🙂

    Trader Joes has beets packaged that have been cooked and peeled! 5 minute meal for sure!

    I usually just toss together a couple things, and call it a salad!

    I never thought I liked beets until I had them in a spinach and goat cheese salad! Now it’s one of my favorites!

    I’ve been a huge fan of salads with fruit in them! Throw in some strawberries and I’m sold.

    My mom makes the BEST pickled beets. I could eat this salad all day long.

    I’m not a huge beets fan myself, but I don’t think I’ve ever roasted them before!
