Prep Time: 10 minutes

Serving: 4

 

Ingredients:

 

4-5 medium red beets (1 bunch) – Peace Arch Farms Ltd.

Persian Lime Infused Early Harvest Extra Virgin Olive Oil for drizzling – All of Oils

2 cups Gourmet Baby Lettuce Head Mix – Northern Greens

½ shallot, sliced thinly

¼ cup chopped Dry Roasted Almonds (Lime & Saffron) – Ayoub’s Dried Fruits & Nuts

Directions: 

 

STEP 1 

 

Preheat your oven to 400 F.

 

STEP 2

 

Clean and dry beets, then drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Wrap each beet individually in aluminum foil, then place the beets on a baking sheet and roast for 40-90 minutes until you can pierce easily with a fork.

 

STEP 3

 

Unwrap the beets and allow them to cool, then peel off the skin. Let chill in the fridge until you are ready to prepare the salad.

 

STEP 4

 

For the salad, cut beets into bite-sized pieces. Add torn lettuce, shallot, pear, almonds, and microgreens in a medium-sized bowl. Toss to combine, then drizzle with balsamic vinegar to taste.

 

STEP 5

 

Add chunks/pieces of goat cheese and toss salad again until everything is combined and nicely coated with the dressing. Season with salt and pepper and serve immediately. Enjoy!

 

Recipe Notes: 

 

Beets are so versatile because they are available year-round. They lend a great earthy flavour that pairs well with rich olive oil and vibrant balsamic vinegar. In this Vibrant Beet Salad with Goat Cheese recipe, we combined the flavours of Persian lime with cranberry and pear to complement the spicy and bold microgreens, crisp lettuce, and crunchy roasted almonds. And finally, topping it all off with creamy, delicious chevre cheese! This dish serves perfectly with a beef roast, or try it packed as your lunch for work. Either way, everyone will enjoy the bite of this delectable salad!
