A Fresh and Delicious Summer Salad

I wanted to make something a little unexpected with strawberries, so I made a Strawberry Beet Salad. Beets and strawberries are amazing when paired together, especially when the beets are oven roasted. By roasting the beets, their natural sweetness and amazing flavour are enhanced, making them perfect with fresh strawberries. Then tossed with a tangy balsamic vinaigrette…YUM.

Beets + Strawberries = Delicious

For this simple salad, roasted beets and fresh strawberries are tossed in a sweet and tangy honey mustard balsamic vinaigrette, and topped off with crumbled creamy goat cheese and fresh spring onions. So basically this salad is amazing. Ah. Mazing. Fresh, healthy and loaded with summertime flavour.

Strawberry Beet Salad Recipe Tips

  • BEETS: You can use red beets or yellow beets for this recipe.
  • ROASTING BEETS: Allow for 1 1/2 to 2 hours to roast the beets. Or use leftover cooked beets to speed things up. Sometimes I will roast a big batch of beets either in the oven, or in the slow cooker, on the weekend to use throughout the week in different recipes.
  • STRAWBERRIES: Use fresh strawberries.
  • ONION: You can use fresh green onions or red onion in this salad.
  • SWEETENER: This recipe calls for honey but you can also use brown sugar or maple syrup.
  • ENJOY SAME DAY: This recipe is best enjoyed right away. I don’t recommend making it a day ahead as the strawberries will get too soft.
  • SERVING SUGGESTION: This salad is delicious with BBQ chicken and fresh bread.  A healthy and complete meal you need to try!

Ingredients

Units Scale

Roasted Beets:

  • 5 medium whole beets
  • splash of vegetable oil

Vinaigrette:

  • 2 tbsp canola oil, vegetable oil or olive oil
  • 1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tsp honey
  • 1/2 tsp dry mustard
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1/8 tsp ground black pepper

Salad:

  • roasted beets
  • 1 cup cubed fresh strawberries
  • 1 green onion, sliced
  • 1/2 cup crumbled goat cheese or feta cheese

Instructions

Roasted Beets:

  1. Roast the beets first. To do this, I trim off the tops and bottoms of the beets, then cut them in half and place the beets in the centre of a sheet of aluminum foil, drizzle them with oil and wrap them up in the foil. Or place them in a baking dish, cover with foil and bake.
  2. Bake at 375 degrees F for 1 1/2 hours.

Vinaigrette:

  1. Combine all of the vinaigrette ingredients, and set aside.

Putting it all together:

  1. Once the beets have been roasted, remove the beet skins then cut the beets in to small bite sized cubes.
  2. Add the beets, strawberries and onions to a large serving bowl.
  3. Toss with the vinaigrette.
  4. Sprinkle with the crumbled goat cheese and extra fresh ground pepper.
  5. Serve right away and enjoy!

  1. I made this last weekend for my family and they loved it! I used feta instead of goat cheese and beets right from our garden. Delicious dressing, put in on the side and let people put it on themselves as it was a lot of dressing.
