This Roasted Beet Feta Salad is made with fresh Beets, is there any other vegetable like it? 

Beet and Feta Salad

Once you start to learn to prepare and cook fresh beets, you may find yourself loving everything about them. 

The stems and leafs are even edible so nothing goes to waste here.

The nice thing about fresh beets is the cooking process, it’s super simple.

So let me show you how you too can cook and prepare beets at home.

Fresh beets is always best in this type of salad, “trust me”.

What I love about beets is that they are low in fat and are a great source of nutrients, including fiber, folate and vitamin C.

If that is not a reason to eat more beets, than I don’t know what is!

Beets also contain nitrates and pigments that may help lower blood pressure. 

This recipe serves two for dinner and four as an appetizer, best served warm.

Now you may think beets are messy and they can be.

However, I will teach you how to prepare them so they are not!

HOW TO ROAST BEETS?

  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Then wrap the beets with the skin on in aluminum foil and place on the medium shelve in oven.

  • Do the same for the garlic, roast it in it’s skin.
  • Then bake for 45 minutes once they have baked remove the foil with an oven mitt (be careful there hot) and let it cool slightly enough so you can peel off the skin.

  • Slice into 1/4-inch thick slices, and chop in quarters. Top with toasted walnuts, feta cheese and your dressing. Serve warm and enjoy!

Also it’s best to buy your feta cheese cubed, this way it retains its amazing flavor.

And don’t throw out the beet greens as they are packed with nutrients that can strengthen your immune system, support brain and bone health, and more.

Or you can use them in your next stir fry or give them to your pets, this way nothing goes to waist 🙂 Oh beets are awesome.

In the title you say a balsamic dressing but in the ingredients you have red wine vinegar,just wondering which one.

If you make the salad the night before and serve it the next day-is it still good? You mention that it should be served warm

Wow! Was looking for a quick idea to use my precooked beets I bought in bulk at BJ’s, using whatever I already had on hand. Since my main dish was going to be ready quickly, had to cut the 75 minute prep to 7.5 minutes! . Added diced precooked beets to baby spinach & crumbled feta. Warmed the honey then added balsamic vin, minced garlic clove, salt & cracked pepper; poured on the salad, topped with chopped walnuts. AMAZINGLY delicious! Can’t wait to try it as written!!

Hello Jena 🙂 It just added roasted to the directions, it says it in the directions though. I hope it worked out for you, thank you for letting me know so I could update it to be more clear.
