It’s summer salad time, people! It’s been over 80 degrees on multiple days this week, so that means I’m totally in the mood for something refreshing but packed full of bright flavors, like my recipe for roasted beet and orange salad!
This is such a winning flavor combo. Bold roasted beet flavor plus light and refreshing citrus: you just can’t go wrong! I’ve been seriously obsessed with beets, and I feel like they consistently get a reputation for being a “winter vegetable.” I totally love beets in the colder months of the year, but I wholeheartedly believe they can be just as welcome and fresh on our plates in the summer. This recipe is proof!
Beets are so incredibly good for you. They are packed with tons of fiber, nutrients, vitamins and minerals – especially folic acid (perfect for all my pregnant friends out there!). Sometimes I find it hard to believe that something this delicious can be so healthy for you! 🙂
For the accompanying components of this salad, I chose mostly traditional flavor combinations but kicked them up a notch with what I think is a pretty unique and interesting presentation. Walnuts classically go with beets – but make them candied for an extra sweet surprise! Goat cheese and beets is of course the quintessential beet flavor combo, but whipping it with heavy whipping cream makes it light and airy – perfect for serving next to your grilled entree at your next summer barbecue!
