As the days get shorter, it’s sometimes harder to motivate myself to cook. I’m somewhere in between the light summer dinners and hearty, cozy meals for snowy nights. This roasted beet salad is the perfect balance and usually where I land. It’s simple, with an elegant, restaurant-like feel. But what I love most is the color. You could choose any variety of beets and have a beautiful salad but the golden beets lend a bit of warmth. This is the perfect light, weeknight meal that requires just a bit of chopping and patience while the beets roast. Or, if you’re planning ahead, the beets could easily be roasted on the weekend.
