Beet Salad with Goat Cheese
The Best Beet Salad has goat cheese and an orange-balsamic vinaigrette. It's simple to make, and delicious!
Servings: 6 Servings
- 3 large beets peeled and cubed
- 5 ounces mixed salad greens
- 4 ounces goat cheese crumbled
- 1/4 cup orange juice
- 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
- 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
- 2 teaspoons sugar optional
- 1/2 tsp salt
Place the cubed beets in a steamer basket over boiling water with the lid on. Steam the beets until tender, 12 to 15 minutes. When finished, cool in the refrigerator.
Rinse the salad greens, dry in a spinner, and combine in a bowl. Top with cooled beets and crumbled goat cheese.
Make the dressing by combining the orange juice, balsamic vinegar, olive oil, sugar (optional) and salt in a small bowl and whisk. Drizzle over the salad just before serving.
