The deep, satisfying flavor of beets adds sweetness to a pretty salad of baby spinach, tomato, and avocado, drizzled with a light dressing. This salad has been a huge hit with everyone, even my 8-year-old grandson.

Fabulous salad! I had roasted some beets last night and was looking for a salad to use them in and stumbled upon this recipe and so glad that I did. We used mixed greens in place of the spinach as that's what I had on hand. I just put all of the toppings on the salad and then drizzled with the dressing. It was delicious! I can't wait to have it tomorrow again for lunch! Read More

Very good and interesting salad recipe. I thought the dressing as is was a bit too tart. I added a bit of sugar to sweeten it up. Read More

I'll admit I used canned beets (rinsed and cut into large chunks) but this was still really delicious. When I have more time I'll do it the way the recipe recommends. Read More

Based on the recipe I thought it might be just ok. Was I wrong! Absolutely delicious more flavour then I could have imagined. I did use a little more lemon juice as I love lemon and this gave the dressing such an added pop. If you like beets you will love this recipe! Read More
