Roasted Beet Kale Salad with Goat Cheese and Walnuts

This salad recipe is perfect for holiday’s, Thanksgiving, dinner parties, etc. The Kale holds up so much longer than most other greens and gives it a nice crunch, so feel free to prepare a little ahead of time. I prefer it that way anyway so the kale can break down a little bit and not be so tough.

Can I use a different kind of green other than Kale?

You can absolutely serve with Arugula, Spinach, Spring Mix, etc., however, just keep in mind it will wilt pretty fast, so I would recommend assembling just before serving.

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees and line rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Remove the tops and the roots of the beets and peel each one with a vegetable peeler.  Cut the beets into 1-2 inch chunks. Arrange onto sheet pan, toss with olive oil and season well with salt and pepper. Roast for 35-45 minutes, tossing halfway, until beets are fork tender.
  3. Meanwhile, make the vinaigrette by combing all ingredients in a mixing bowl or mason jar.  Shake or whisk to combine; set aside.
  4. Place kale in a large serving bowl and drizzle with a few T olive oil.  Using your hands, massage the kale for 30-45 seconds; set aside.
  5. To assemble, top kale with roasted beets, walnuts, and goat cheese.  Add vinaigrette as desired.  Enjoy!!

Notes:

*I like to roast my own beets, however, Trader Joe’s (and some other grocers) sell pre-steamed and peeled beets that make assembling this salad much quicker!  Feel free to do whatever is best for you.
