I came up with this beet and goat cheese salad with balsamic vinaigrette recipe after trying a delicious salad at a restaurant in Philly awhile ago.

Since goat cheese seems to be a new food trend, I thought I’d make this again and get some new photos. Sadly the photos just don’t do this justice. It’s a really awesome looking salad with bright beautiful colors. But the taste. Oh, the taste. The rich creamy goat cheese is perfection with beets and topped with a — this time — homemade balsamic vinaigrette.

I’m kinda into making my own dressings lately. It’s really pretty easy and you can customize the dressing to your dish so I think it’s worth the extra time you need to put in. You can also cut some corners and just use a store-bought balsamic vinaigrette — still delish.
