This salad is a delicious way to enjoy some nutritional powerhouses! It is sweet and earthy. I love anything that combines fruit, nuts, and cheese so this salad is one of my favorites!
- 3 or 4 large beets scrubbed and trimmed
- 1/3 cup walnuts chopped
- 1 Tbs butter
- 2 Tbs honey
- 1 bunch spinach about 10 oz
- 1/2 cup frozen orange juice concentrate
- 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
- 1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil
- 2 ounces goat cheese
Preheat oven to 400° F.
Wrap the beets in foil and roast in the oven until tender, about 1 hour. Open foil and let cool, then peel with paper towel and dice.
Heat butter over medium heat in a non-stick skillet. Mix in honey then add walnuts. Cook and stir for about 5 minutes until coated and toasted. Pour onto baking sheet (lined with foil or parchment) and spread with spatula to cool.
Wisk together orange juice concentrate, balsamic vinegar, and olive oil to make dressing.
Place spinach onto plates. Top with walnuts, beets, and dabs of goat cheese. Drizzle with dressing and enjoy!!
