Roasted Beet Salad

Roasted Beet Salad with Pistachios and Goat Cheese is perfect for holiday entertaining or enjoying any day of the year. 
Roasted Beet Salad with Pistachios and Goat Cheese - The Lemon BowlWhen 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.

BeetsThe 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.

    I love beets, and this salad looks amazing, beautiful picture of it! And what a good point you make, people who don’t like beets always reference some awful encounter with beets that came out of a can! I love a good roasted beet salad, so i’ll definitely have to try this one!

    What a perfect combination of the beets, goat cheese and pistachios. I made this for Thanksgiving with our garden grown beets and it was a huge hit.

    I’ve been thinking about pairing the case of juice oranges with the bag of farm share beets, so I’m looking forward to trying this. I’ve got a book on roasting from the library and apparently I’ve been *steaming* my beets in foil all along, not roasting them. Learn something new every day. Off to check out your recipe–thanks!
