Beet and Citrus Salad

Beet and Citrus Salad

There are so many seasonal fruits and vegetables to look forward to when spring rolls around. Two of my favorites are beets and spinach. I like to combine the sweet taste of beets with the tanginess of citrus and the bold flavor of goat cheese to make a delicious and vibrantly colored salad.

For a dressing, I like to drizzle it with my healthy go-to oil and vinegar dressing. The light flavor allows the tastes of the salad to shine through. Optionally, you can add cooked shrimp or chicken for protein for a fully balanced meal.

The recipe calls for goat cheese, but if you don’t eat it, you can substitute it with feta cheese or leave the cheese out. Also, tangerines work just as well as clementines in the recipe.

It will keep well in an air-tight container in the fridge for up to 3 days. It’s easy, and pretty, to take to work or on a picnic when stored in a mason jar. Just keep the dressing separate until you’re ready to eat it.
