It was one of those days when I was running low on ingredients and needed something healthy to add to the very unhealthy dinner of hot dogs that I was about to feed my kids. I went rooting around in the cupboards and fridge and was able to find ingredients that I thought would make a good beet salad.
In case you find yourself in the same predicament that I did and happen to have these things on hand, I thought I would share. There are no quantities or measurements as I just used what was left of my lettuce and feta, the beets that I had and for the dressing, I didn’t mix it together in a bowl. I just sprinkled in the seasonings and then drizzled with the balsamic and olive oil before tossing the salad.
romaine or endive lettuce, washed and torn into bite size pieces
feta cheese, crumbled*
cooked beets, sliced
balsamic vinegar or reduction (I used strawberry fig balsamic reduction)
*if you don’t have feta, goat cheese and beets is a wonderful flavour combination
