  • 4 medium-sized beets, peeled and cubed
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 4 cups mixed salad greens (like arugula or spinach)
  • 1/2 cup feta cheese, crumbled
  • 1/4 cup walnuts, chopped and toasted
  • 1/4 red onion, thinly sliced
  • For the dressing:
    • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
    • 1 tablespoon honey or maple syrup
    • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
    • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C).
  2. In a bowl, toss the cubed beets with 2 tablespoons of olive oil, salt, and pepper. Spread them on a baking sheet.
  3. Roast the beets in the preheated oven for about 25-30 minutes, or until tender and slightly caramelized. Stir occasionally to ensure even cooking.
  4. While the beets are roasting, prepare the dressing. In a small bowl, whisk together the balsamic vinegar, honey (or maple syrup), Dijon mustard, and the remaining 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Season with salt and pepper.
  5. In a large salad bowl, combine the mixed salad greens, roasted beets, crumbled feta cheese, toasted walnuts, and thinly sliced red onion.
  6. Drizzle the dressing over the salad and gently toss to combine.
  7. Serve the salad immediately, or let it chill in the refrigerator for a short time to enhance the flavors.
