Simple Roasted Beet Salad


Roasted Beet Salad - TCG Recipe of the Month

Let’s face it, it’s been a long winter for us Albertans, and for many in North America.  Bouts of consistent below-freezing weather and long nights usually mean lots of warm soups, and the holidays always bring their share of sugary desserts and extra-large portions. Reset your eating habits and bring on spring with a salad that is both simple and delicious.

This easy salad is perfect for when you are craving strong but comforting flavours in a snap.  Make the dressing in advance and store it in the fridge.  The salad itself is best eaten fresh, but the dressing can easily be stored for future meals.

The simplicity of putting this dish together means that it works well for an on-the-go work lunch or an easy starter salad at dinnertime.
