Beet and Goat Cheese Salad with Homemade Balsamic Vinaigrette

Beet & Goat Cheese Salad with Balsamic Vinaigrette

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 viniagrette. 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.

Instructions

  • 1. Slice beets into quarters. Thinly slice red onions and chop into 1" strands.
  • 2. Mix and shake ingredients for vinaigrette dressing.
  • 3. Combine greens, beets, onions, goat cheese and walnuts in a large bowl. Toss with dressing serve.
