Caramelized Beet and Feta Cheese Salad Recipe

I usually make a caramelized beet and goat cheese salad that involves arugula and avocado… but I didn’t have goat cheese, arugula or avocado so what else did I have in there?  Well I had feta, that could replace the goat cheese, I had onions and tomatoes so there I go!

The result was D-E-L-I-C-I-O-U-S and healthy! Don’t even get me started on my purple food obsession, but beets pack tons of antioxidants, as well as betanin pigments which have been shown to lessen tumor cell growth, I’m sold!
