Roasted Beets and Walnut Salad

Roasted Beets and Walnut Salad

If your only experience is pickled beets out of can, you’re in for quite a surprise. In this recipe, beets are roasted to bring out their sweet flavor. Beets may help protect against heart disease because they’re a good source of folate, manganese, potassium, fiber and vitamin C. While red beets are the most common variety found in supermarkets, beets also come in other hues, including white and yellow, more commonly found at farmer or specialty markets. Sadly, most beets are trimmed of their leaves, but the leaves are entirely edible. If you’re lucky enough to find beets with their leaves still intact, use them for the salad greens after trimming away the tough stems.

This recipe contains beets, cooking spray, fresh spinach, red onions, walnuts, walnut oil, goat cheese, balsamic vinegar, sea salt, black pepper
