Last week, as I was walking through Williams-Sonoma looking for some new supplies, a woman walks up to me, and starts talking about a wonderful dinner she had recently: roasted beet, goat cheese, and maple pecan salad. She described this roasted beet salad and it sounded so good that I went directly to the market, picked up the items needed, and created this dish. The sweet-salty contrast of the roasted beets, the tang of the goat cheese and crunch of the pecans is a delicious combination and the colors are absolutely beautiful.
Beets are a great vegetable to add to your diet if you haven’t already. They are wonderful for detoxing your liver, rich in folate, manganese, potassium, and fiber. Roasting beets brings their sweetness to a whole new level, especially when roasted in coconut oil.
