I am obsessed with this salad…and it’s not just about the taste (which is amazing, by the way). I am obsessed with how sinfully EASY it is to make.

Which is why I’ve been eating a lot of this salad lately…

Can you blame me?

My husband and I went out for dinner and a movie a few weeks ago, and the only restaurant near the movie theater that didn’t have a 45 minute wait was a pretty basic sit-down burger place. I wasn’t too picky about where we ate as long as we could make the movie…

I ordered a salad for dinner that night, intrigued by the beets (which I LOVE on salads) and the candied walnuts (which I also love on salads). The salad I ordered at the restaurant had grilled chicken on it, but honestly the chicken was the least-impressive thing about it.

I came home determined to recreate the beet and walnut and goat cheese salad at home…and I was amazed at how easy it was to do. And what’s better, it whipped up in LESS than 15 minutes and was perfect for this week’s 15 Minute SALAD theme.

Author:

Ingredients
  • Mixed Spring greens with spinach
  • Sliced canned red beets
  • Crumbled goat cheese
  • Candied walnuts
  • Vinaigrette:
  • 4 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 4 tbsp olive oil
  • 3 tbsp honey

Instructions
  1. Add vinegar, olive oil, and honey to a mason jar (or another container with a lid). Secure lid and shake til combined.
  2. Set the salad ingredients on a plate: spring greens, sliced beets, crumbled goat cheese, and candied walnuts.
  3. Drizzle salad with vinaigrette and enjoy! OR toss greens with dressing before setting on plates.

 

The vinaigrette is pretty basic, but if you don’t love vinaigrettes, then try another pre-made dressing. I have also made this salad with a creamy poppyseed dressing which was delicious as well…just a little sweeter than the vinaigrette.
