Beet salad with goat cheese and toasted walnuts

I recently tried a beet salad at a restaurant the other day and was inspired to make my own little creation. I am such a big fan of goat cheese, so I combined it with that. I love adding walnuts to a salad because it adds nice texture and flavor.

This is a simple, filling, and healthful salad. Hope you enjoy eating it as much as I do!

  • 3 ounces of spinach
  • 1 tablespoon walnuts
  • 1/2 one beet
  • 1 ounce goat cheese
  • 1/2 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon extra virgin olive oil

Peel and chop the beet into small cubes. Heat the walnuts over medium heat on the stove until toasted, about 4-5 minutes.

In a small bowl, mix the vinegar and olive oil together. Add pepper if desired.

Arrange the spinach on a plate, add the beets, toasted walnuts, and sprinkle the goat cheese evenly across the salad. Add the dressing, toss, and enjoy!
