So about a month ago I saw a bag of organic golden beets at my local discount grocery store. I grabbed them of course. I LOVE golden beets. LOVE.

Naturally I forgot all about them. Fail. Luckily they were still good and I roasted them up (400 degrees for 45 minutes or so) and made the most beautiful salad ever. The beauty of this salad is that you can add almost anything to it! I went with spring mix for the greens, grape tomatoes, mandarin slices, pomegranate seeds, dried cranberries and lightly salted roasted cashews. Second failure was that we were out of my favorite dressing so I MacGuyvered a quick dressing out of equal parts good quality balsamic, EVOO and about two tablespoons of maple syrup. It was delish!

Make this salad. It’s sooo good.
