Roasted Beet Salad with Greens

To Your Health – With a Great Salad

Sometimes we get overwhelmed by all the constant talk about healthy foods, eating enough of them, finding the time to change our diets and include more of the important foods…Well, here’s a great salad that is nutritious, wholesome, tasty and best of all, beautiful & easy to serve.

Roasted Beet Salad with Greens

Serves 6

Ingredients

1 large onion, sliced into quarters or half-rings
1-2 leeks, sliced
1 each red, orange, and yellow peppers, sliced
6 medium sized beets, peeled and chunked
1 fennel, chunked, optional
1/4 teaspoon pepper
2 teaspoons garlic powder
1-2 tablespoons olive oil
1/2 cup of semi-dry white wine
6 cups any mix of greens
1 red onion, sliced into half rings

Method

Prepare the onion, leeks, pepper, beets and fennel and cut them as directed. Put them all in a bowl and toss them together with the pepper, garlic powder and olive oil.
Preheat the oven to 375°F / 190-200°C.

Layer the vegetable mix into a lined baking pan. Pour the wine over all. Bake this until the beets are softened, about 45 minutes. If the vegetables start to dry out, add in a bit more wine and stir. Remove from the oven and let it cool. Place it in a plastic container with a lid to refrigerate until serving.

To serve, toss together the greens and the red onion. Divide the greens among the six salad plates; spoon the roasted beet mix on each plate. This does not need additional salad dressing as it is quite tasty and healthy as is. If you really, positively feel you must add more dressing, then you can choose to drizzle a bit of olive oil and fresh lemon juice on each plate, along with a small pinch of real sea salt – but the salad really does taste wonderful as is. We had nothing left of this one just as soon as the photos were done…
Enjoy – to your good health!
