beet salad with avocado and goat cheese

Balsamic Beet Salad


Every chef and home cook has a recipe for this iconic and delicious salad – beet salad with goat cheese. This simple and elegant salad is around for a good reason – it’s delicious, refreshing and packed with nutrition! I make my recipe with oven-roasted beets that are baked with olive oil, salt and herbs until tender. I also make my own easy balsamic dressing sweetened with honey. You’ll love the dressing!

Everything in California revolves around avocados; at least in our kitchen! To add more creaminess and flavor to this beet salad, I love to add some sliced avocado on top. And for a bit of crunchiness, pecan halves. You can also use sweet and crunchy praline pecans for even more delicious flavor!

Looking to add a bit of protein to this recipe? I love to add a bit of Italian marinated grilled chicken during the summer. In the fall and winter months, I like to enjoy this salad with herbed lamb chops or some juicy steak! Check out my recipe archives for some ideas!
