Roasted Beet Salad with Pistachios and Goat Cheese is perfect for holiday entertaining or enjoying any day of the year.
When I created this salad, I definitely had Hanukkah in mind, but it would be perfect for Thanksgiving, Thanksgivukkah, Christmas or any day that ends in a Y. I’m a huge fan of roasted beets and in fact, my very first blog post was a Roasted Beet Salad with Wheat Berries back in June of 2010.
The thing is, if someone tells me they don’t like beets I will always challenge them. 99% of the time, their only experience with beets involves a can and a metallic after-taste. If you are worried your guests won’t like this salad, I urge you to give it a chance. By slowly roasting the beets with fresh rosemary and orange juice, the natural sugars are able to caramelize creating a tender and succulent vegetable that tastes nothing like they would ever expect.
Oh and did I mention the creamy goat cheese and crunchy pistachios? Head on over to HumanaVitality for the complete recipe – you won’t regret it.
Your fork is waiting.
