Roasted Beet Salad

Go read my blog “Normal is Boring”! You’ll hear the story behind this roasted beet salad recipe and what else I cooked!

Lots of people say they don’t really like beets. My family has grown to love them, and I think it’s because we have learned to cook them well!

One of my favorite cooking methods is baking beets. They turn out soft and flavorful. 

This recipe takes those roasted beets, and turns them into a delicous roasted beet salad that compliments saltier foods perfectly! If you want a fresh tasting side salad for your meal, this is a great choice!

Let me know if you like it! If you want the other recipes that I made along with this beet salad, read this blog.
