Caramelized Beet and Feta Cheese Salad

Today’s lunch was inspired by what was in my refrigerator… beets!

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!

Caramelized Beet and Feta Salad Ingredients

Ingredients

  • 8 oz baby beets (steamed & peeled)
  • 1/2 red onion (chopped)
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp Balsamic Vinegar
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 1/2 tomato (chopped)
  • 2 tbsp feta cheese

Preheat the oven to 450 degrees. Line a baking sheet with foil then place the beets on top.

Sprinkle the chopped onions over the beets then drizzle with olive oil and balsamic. Top with salt and pepper.

Caramelizing Beets

Place in the oven for 6 minutes, toss, then cook for an additional 6 minutes.

Remove from the oven and place the beets on a plate. Pour the sauce from the foil onto the beets then top with the chopped tomatoes and feta cheese.

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!
