This salad is not only delicious but also visually appealing, making it a great choice for both casual meals and special occasions.


  • 4 medium-sized beets (red or golden)
  • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons honey or maple syrup
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 6 cups mixed salad greens (such as arugula, spinach, or mixed baby greens)
  • 1/2 cup walnuts, toasted and chopped
  • 4 ounces goat cheese, crumbled
  • Optional: 2 tablespoons fresh herbs (such as parsley or dill), chopped


  1. Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C). Wrap the beets individually in aluminum foil and place them on a baking sheet. Roast in the preheated oven for about 45-60 minutes, or until tender when pierced with a fork. Let them cool, then peel and slice into thin rounds.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk together the balsamic vinegar, olive oil, and honey (or maple syrup). Season with salt and pepper to taste. This will be your dressing.
  3. Arrange the mixed salad greens on a large platter or in a salad bowl.
  4. Top the greens with the sliced roasted beets, toasted walnuts, and crumbled goat cheese.
  5. Drizzle the dressing over the salad. Toss gently to combine if preferred.
  6. If using, sprinkle the chopped fresh herbs over the top for added flavor and color.
  7. Serve the salad immediately or chill in the refrigerator for a short time before serving.
