It’s Meatless Monday-Beet, Orange and Walnut Salad


Salads aren’t just for summer. Right now there are lots of items in the produce department that make a hearty fall supper. This one started with a few remaining items I had from the CSA boxes…beets and salad mix. Put it together with some other things found in the pantry and you’ve got this week’s Meatless Monday which is a snap to put together.

2 cups cubed and cooked beets
1 orange, peeled and cut into bite size pieces
½ cup toasted, chopped walnuts
½ cup crumbled blue cheese
¼ cup sweetened dried cranberries
4 cups salad mix, lettuce, salad, whatever you like
4 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
Salt and pepper

Place salad mix on a large platter.

In a large bowl, add beets, orange, walnuts and cranberries. Toss to mix and then fold in blue cheese.

Set aside while you make the dressing.

In a small bowl, whisk together oil and vinegar and then season with salt and pepper to suit your taste.

Add the dressing to the beet mixture and mix well.

Top the salad mix with the beet mixture and serve immediately.
Serves 4.
