Recipe Ingredients for Roasted Beet Salad with Crumbled Feta (Light)

6 beets (3 red beets and 3 golden beets)
34 grams (1/4 cup) fat-free feta cheese, crumbled
1 cup Mixed Spring greens, rinsed and dried
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
3 tbsp fresh lemon juice

Recipe Directions for Roasted Beet Salad with Crumbled Feta (Light)

  1. Preheat oven to 400F.

  2. Tear or cut the beet tops from the beets, leaving about an inch of stalk attached. Wash and thoroughly dry the beets.

  3. Place beets in a roasting pan or on a flat baking pan or sheet pan. Drizzle with a bit of extra virgin olive oil and sprinkle with Kosher salt. Roast for 30-45 minutes, depending on size and the desired doneness. Test for doneness after about 30 minutes of cooking by piercing the largest beet with a knife. If the knife easily enters the beet with only a small amount of resistance, it's done. And the smaller ones will be, too.

  4. Remove from oven and let cool for 20 minutes or so.

  5. Slip the skins off the beets by hand. They should slip off easily, but you can use a paring knife on any stubborn spots. Just be careful not to cut away too much beet.

  6. Cut the beets into -inch dice and toss in a stainless steel mixing bowl with enough olive oil to coat them.

  7. Cut the lemon in half and squeeze the juice of about half of it in to the bowl, gently stirring to combine and checking the flavor as you go.

  8. Season to taste with Kosher salt if desired.

  9. Whisk together 3 Tbsp olive oil and 1 Tbsp lemon juice and toss the greens in this dressing in a separate bowl.

  10. Spoon the beet mixture onto the center of a salad plate and top each portion with about 1 Tbsp of crumbled feta cheese and about cup of the dressed greens. Serve right away.
