The Best Beet Salad

Beets

I love beets and thyme, and this recipe for a beet salad with goat cheese is a great way to enjoy both flavors. It’s so amazing the variety of beets that are found in the market these days.

Try this salad, and let me know how you like it in the comments section below. How do you like preparing your beets?

Beet and Goat Cheese Salad with Thyme/Lime Dressing
Serves 6-8

You will need:
– 6 large red beets, roasted
– 8 tablespoons plain goat cheese
– 6 cups arugula

To prepare beets:

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

Roast beets in skin in the oven for 45 minutes

Let the beets cool, then peel the beets and slice into ½ inch disks

* I use gloves or a knife and fork to peel my beets; it’s much less messy this way.

Dressing

You will need:
– ¼ cup lime olive oil like O&CO
– ¼ cup lime juice
– ¼ cup plain Greek yogurt
– 3 tablespoons finely chopped shallot
– 3 tablespoons fresh Thyme leaves
– 1 teaspoon lime zest

To prepare salad: 

Place all dressing ingredients in a small lidded jar, close the lid and shake until combined

Assembly of the salad: Arrange beets on a platter or a plate on top of arugula, dollop with teaspoons of goat cheese, pour dressing over the salad.
