Roasted Beet Salad

My favourite salad in the world is a beet salad. There's something so wonderful about the combination of beets and goat cheese. It's like the two were meant for each other.

My husband put together this visually pleasing path of colours and textures. At one end of the plate, discs of beet and pear crowned with clumps of goat cheese and toasted pecans. At the other, tangy orange segments and fresh tomato over a bed of peppery arugula. A citrusy dressing was used all over – orange, red wine vinegar, olive oil, dijon, sugar, salt and pepper.

I could seriously eat this every day and not get bored.

Crazy. It looks like we had a lot of similarities in our very tasty salads tonight for dinner. You have made me hungry all over again.
