Searching for an ideal spring salad recipe that’s nearly as good for you as it’s scrumptious? Make my roasted Beet Salad with Grilled Hen, goat cheese, and almonds!
I inherited my love of beets from my mother and currently we’ve been experimenting with extra beet recipes for you all. Beets are very lengthy lasting within the fridge earlier than you cook dinner them and after. They’re very straightforward to arrange too. You possibly can both peel them earlier than cooking them or wait and pull the skins off after cooking them. Simply reduce the ends off and set them collectively in a single foil packet and pop them within the oven for about 50 minutes. Allow them to cool and so they’re good to go! Really easy! Don’t add any oil or salt and pepper. I meant it once I say put set them within the foil packet and do nothing else. It’s that straightforward.
I used my favourite excellent grilled hen recipe right here (with thyme as an alternative of oregano), which is actually the spine of The Rose Desk. It is a nice little make-ahead dish, as you may simply grill the hen and prep the beets a day prematurely after which put the salad collectively in mere minutes.
