It’s pretty easy to keep those resolutions to eat salad when your salad contains crispy bacon, sweet roasted beets, crunchy walnuts and creamy goat cheese!
Preheat oven to 400 F.
Wrap the beet in aluminum foil and bake at 400 F for 1-1 1/2 hours or until a small knife can go through it easily. Remove it from the oven, unwrap and allow it to cool, then peel and slice thinly.
While the beet is cooking, toast the walnuts lightly in a dry pan over medium heat. This will only take a couple of minutes so stir them and be careful that they don’t burn. When they start to turn slightly golden and smell nutty, remove from heat and set aside to cool.
In a bowl, whisk together the vinaigrette ingredients.
Begin to compose the salad. Place the spinach on 2 plates followed by the red onion and the sliced beets. Add the crumbled bacon and walnuts. Crumble on the goat cheese and pour on the vinaigrette. Toss to combine and serve!
A fresh grape and sugared-pecan salad, paired with blue cheese and homemade Meyer lemon dressing. Simple and delicious!
Like most salads, this is a flexible recipe. You want a few components that keep the meal interesting: sweet fruit, crunchy nuts, soft and tangy cheese, a bite from the onion, and a dressing to pull it all together. Add chickpeas if a container is hiding somewhere in the fridge.
Shredded raw Brussels sprouts give great crunch to this fun twist on the classic Caesar salad!
