  • 1
    Preheat oven to 425°F. Clean beets thoroughly. Slice in half with a sharp knife, then place in a small baking dish lined with parchment. Drizzle half of the olive oil over the beets; bake 40-45 minutes, or until the beets are tender when pierced with a fork.
  • 2
    Remove beets from oven; allow to cool slightly. In small bowl, whisk together the remaining olive oil and balsamic vinegar. Remove the skin of the beets and discard. Dice beets into bite-sized pieces.

    Arrange salad mix on plate, sprinkle with beets and goat cheese crumbles. Drizzle with balsamic dressing. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

Expert Tips

  • Fresh beets give this salad a distinctive flavor and texture. If you don’t have time to roast your own, canned beets can be used in place of fresh ones.
  • Use any variety of beets you desire in this recipe. Golden beets will lend a slightly sweeter flavor. Candy-striped beets will give the salad a different color, but the flavor will still be ridiculously delicious!
