Perfectly Colorful Holiday Salad

Roasted vegetables are a seasonal favorite around our house – especially fresh colorful beets. Thinking of the colors that we associate with the season, this red and green salad makes the perfect addition to your holiday table.

This recipe is a rif on the Beet Salad with Watercress Drizzle from the Ellie Krieger cookbook, “The Food You Crave”.

Simply scrub the beets, wash and dry them, coat with a little olive oil, and wrap in foil. Roast in the oven for approximately 45-60 minutes at 400 degrees (until tender).

Beet Salad without dressing

Follow the recipe from here, with the only difference being: we used mache (lettuce) instead of watercress in the dressing, as well as a small amount to “plate” the salad. Tasty and pretty, for sure. Happy Holidays!

  1. Absolutely beautiful & so festive. I keep meaning to make myself a beet salad (I say myself because beets are one of those things that my husband considers poisonous). Happy New Year!
