If you enjoyed this easy beet salad recipe, you'll love these fresh ideas.
Arugula & Roasted Beets Salad
This beet, arugula, olive, shallot and feta salad is only dressed with olive oil to keep it light and to preserve the roasted beet flavors. If you prefer a more substantial dressing, this salad pairs very well with our lemon poppy seed dressing.
French Peasant Beets
Originally considered French “peasant food”, there is nothing paltry about the flavors of this dish! It is a mixture of sweet, tender beet slices, sautéed greens, and Swiss chard. Season it with salt, freshly-ground pepper, and a splash of white wine. It is marvelous when served with a mild cheese and warm baguettes.
Roasted Beet Salad
Let the beets shine by making this healthy salad that is gorgeous on a plate, for simple lunch recipes. Use hazelnut oil instead of the olive oil if you can find it, otherwise, olive oil works equally well. Pair with a American Black Ale.
A crowd-pleasing picnic favorite, this salad showcases the delicious medley of wheat berries, quinoa, red lentils, broccoli, baby kale, pomegranate seeds, mint and cilantro leaves. The honey-mustard vinaigrette adds volume to this simple salad. This is a perfect simple salad course, or light lunch. Pair with a simple grilled chicken breast for a complete meal.
