A colorful and tasty sounding combination salad. Beets are so typical of the region.


What a wonderful choice - I am a big fan of beets but husband doesn't want them so, I make small portions for myself. Thank you for hosting and I hope I can be a regular with your group again.

Your salad is lovely. Thanks again for hosting.

Indeed, they are, Claudia and they are great in combination with so many vegetables. I bought a large bunch at the farmers market yesterday: they are irresistible with their lovely greens :)

I hope you try the salad, Tina: I usually roast enough vegetables to make two portions. It's become a regular in my salad rotation. I am glad you plan to participate again in CtB :)

Thank you, Wendy :)

Thanks for hosting, Simona! I love the addition of blue cheese to this. (I would have left the meat out as well.) Great salad that we will be trying. I might roast potatoes and add in.

Sorry to be late with a comment... it's that time of year for thinking fresh and light so this dish sounds perfect for that. As we approach Easter I'm also thinking of dishes with beets in them. Can't remember why my mom used to make those for the holiday....

Simona Carini

You're welcome, Debra. I recommend the salad. It's now a regular in my rotation — in fact I had it for dinner tonight :)

I find bunches of red beets irresistible, Cathy, and carrots too. Fresh and light, indeed: this salad is perfect in that respect. I think after winter we crave color and red beets certainly deliver that :)
