Greens, Beets and Goat Cheese Salad with Honey-Mustard Vinaigrette

Serves 4

This salad recipe is super easy to make and so good. All of the flavors complement each other perfectly. When I first made it, I used canned beets. Since then, I am able to purchase cooked beets in a vacuum-sealed package that are fresher tasting than canned and have no salt or liquid added. If you can get them, do so. If not, the canned are still very good. Of course, you can use cooked fresh beets when available and you have the time. This salad is quick enough for a busy weeknight, but makes a special presentation for entertaining.


Place the greens, onions and beets in a large salad bowl. Place the garlic, mustard and honey in a small bowl. Add the vinegar and whisk to combine. Add the olive oil gradually, whisking constantly until emulsified. Whisk in the salt and pepper. Drizzle the desired amount of dressing over the salad. Add the cheese and toss well. Serve immediately.

Notes: For a more elegant presentation, place the greens on individual salad plates. Top with the onions and beets, crumble the cheese on top and drizzle with dressing.
