Roasted Beet Salad with Feta is delicious as a standalone dish or paired with chicken, beef, or seafood dishes. Roasting the beets is in the oven is easy to prepare and brings out their flavor.
Preheat your oven to 400 degrees. Rinse the beets (usually 3-4 come banded together) and cut off the beet greens. (Don’t throw them away, though! Beet greens are delicious steamed and served as a side with a little olive oil and salt.)
Place the beets in a large piece of foil, drizzle with olive oil, salt and pepper and a chopped clove of garlic. Close up the sides to make a foil packet. Place in the oven on the rack or a sheet pan. Roast for 40-45 minutes. Carefully peel back the foil to test. Once the beets are fork tender they are ready. Set aside to cool.
Arrange fresh salad greens in a large bowl. Top with chopped beets and crumbled feta. Drizzle with Homemade Greek Salad Dressing.
Serve with chicken, seafood and beef main dishes for a tasty and healthy side dish.
