Roasted Beets give a deep flavor and the fresh, ripe peaches add the perfect sweetness to this salad that is topped with walnuts and goat cheese. A homemade vinaigrette tops this Roasted Beet & Peach Salad and turns this salad into a show stopper.
If you have never tried roasting beets now is your chance. Roasted beets give beets a whole new meaning, one you will love. The only way I recall eating beats was cooked until soft and topped with a sprinkle of salt. They were OK at best. Roast the beets and you will have a whole new appreciation for the vegetable, I guarantee it.
For some reason, peaches and beets are a classic combination for a salad. Add to that mixed greens, onions, croutons, walnuts and goat cheese and you have the perfect Roasted Beet & Peach Salad. The vinaigrette brings adds a bit more sweetness to the salad.
I love fruit on a salad, do you? Right now peaches are in season so it was the perfect time to come up with a salad with fresh peaches. I am on a goat cheese kick right now, I eat it on every salad I make, I just can’t seem to get enough of it! If you have a recipe that utilizes goat cheese, please share!
