Sweet Beet Salad

Sweet Beets

Here’s a super simple Sweet Beets salad for summer!  All ingredients can be found at Trader Joe’s grocery store.

Beets and butter lettuce

You will need:

  • 1 package of butter lettuce
  • 1 package of beets/ or 3 prepared beets, chopped  (I cheat and use beets steamed and peeled)
  • handful of candied walnuts, crumbled
  • goat cheese, crumbled
  • champagne vinaigrette

Use butter lettuce leaves as your base, layer chopped beets, then crumbled goat cheese and walnuts.

For the vinaigrette, I use a small spoon to lightly drizzle the dressing.   The salad flavors do not need to be overpowered, just a small amount is all you need.   Best of all these can be eaten like a taco, or use a knife and fork! Enjoy!
