Balsamic Roasted Beet Salad

Marinated Beet Salad

This Roasted Beet Salad Recipe has only ten ingredients and SO much flavor! This just may be your new favorite salad.

Rather than chopping ingredients for a salad each night, prep 1 large salad at the beginning of the week. Then simply dish it up as a side salad for dinners or scoop some out for a quick lunch. Many of our meal plans provide a salad recipe, this one is pulled from our Winter 1 Plan.

A balsamic roasted beet & shaved fennel salad is one of my favorite winter salads. On your prep day, you’ll need to roast your beets & thinly slice your fennel. The rest is simply assembling your salad. This salad keeps for 3-5 days. I’ll wait and add in the goat cheese at dinnertime if I know the salad is going to be around much longer than 3 days.
