This is absolutely hands down the best salad ever made in the history of all salads. On second thought, it may be neck and neck with my Spinach, Strawberry and Shaved Almonds Salad. When it comes to texture and flavor, it is definitely too close to call. However, this delowcious salad is a little more labor intensive than most, especially if you decide to make your own special ingredients. For example I like to roast my own beets and candy my own walnuts to really make this recipe special and stand out from all of the rest.
- Mixed greens
- Roasted beets
- Goat Cheese
- Candied Walnuts
- Balsamic Dressing (I prefer a creamy balsamic)
After you have prepared your Roasted Beets and Candied Walnuts, mix all of the ingredients together for the perfect melody of flavors and textures. You can use dressing or chose to leave it out. It’s up to you. If the beets are juicy and tender enough they act as their own dressing. The crunch of the walnuts and the softness of the cheese mixed with the earthy taste of the beets and dynamic flavor of the mixed greens… It’s like a party in your mouth!
