Roasted Beets, Orange and Goat’s Cheese



You can’t beat beets!!!!


Beet Salad


As Christmas season 2014 comes to an end I find myself yearning for the fresh simple flavours of summer and fall already. I think the rich holiday foods have been the best, but I’m done. I’m now ready for crisp, cold veggies. I’m a skier and my family has the privilege of skiing every weekend at our cottage all winter. Today as I came in for lunch I watched so many line up for chili, hotdogs, burgers, chicken fingers and poutine (fries, gravy and cheese curds – for all my non Canadian blog friends) all I could think of was the build your own salad  section in the lodge. I made a salad with mixed greens, chickpeas, mushrooms, peppers, black olives, corn, beets, feta and roast chicken. It was  incredible. No salad dressing – I know I’m weird. But I truly love the taste of veggies in their naked state.

As I finished my salad the one thing I was sad to see go was the beets. It left me wanting more!!! So when I arrived home I made this salad with all the items I always have in my house. Its simple, quick and easy! Enjoy and I think this recipe will leave you craving more!
