Roasted beet salad with mint and feta goat cheese

October 1, 2010

This is a very easy and tasty salad.

I used two very large beets. Good for two to four servings depending on size. I don’t generally feel inclined to pig out on beets even though I love them.

I cut off the tops and the bottom and placed them in a baking dish bottoms down.

I roasted the beets at 450 for about an hour and a half. Roasting time will vary according to the size of the beet. They are done when the skin is wrinkly and starts to come apart from the flesh of the beet at the top. The bottom of the beet the skin generally remains attached.

Let the beets cool for a while and then peel and cut them in large bite size pieces and place in a bowl.

I added:

  • Whole mint leaves from the garden (our plant has tiny leaves this year)
  • crumbled feta goat cheese
  • Olive oil
  • Balsamic Vinegar
  • Salt and pepper

All those ingredients can really be used to your taste. I didn’t measure anything, I simply tossed them in until it looked and tasted good.

    Beets are a food that I’m still trying really hard to get into. If anything turns me over to the dark side…it’s this salad. I love the sound of the beet feta mix.
