Roasted Beet, Nut and Feta Salad – “A Salad For Each Week” #45

IMG_0101

At my local farmer’s market just about a week ago, I was able to pick up a large bunch of watercress and “just picked this morning” romaine. I also bought 3 beets and combined them all together to make this salad which is now one of my favorites. It’s a perfect light lunch or midday snack since it’s protein and fat combo satisfy you without over-filling you. Whenever I roast veggies, I do a large mix or large, separate batches at the same time so I can have them on hand for the next few days. This is one of the main time-saving tips that allow me to always have something whole and healthy on hand.

Roasted Beet, Nut, and Feta Salad Salad

  • 2-3 cups of your favorite greens

  • 1/3 cup roasted beets, cut into bite-sized pieces

  • 2 Tablespoons Walnuts, almonds,and Brazil nuts, chopped

  • 2 Tablespoons feta cheese, crumbled

  • Olive oil and white balsamic vinegar 

Peel and cut beets. Place on a baking sheet and spray with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Bake at 350 for about 20 minutes. 

Arrange lettuces in a bowl and top with nuts and feta. Place beets on top. If you use the beets while they are still warm, they slightly melt the feta which is yummy! Or you can choose to make this a completely cold salad, and it is still delicious. Drizzle with a touch of oil and vinegar.
