This salad is FANTASTIC! I didn't have boullion mix so omitted it. I didn't have the walnuts either so I just added some toasted pine nuts and sunflower seeds and for sweetness added a bit of chopped mango. I'll try it with the walnuts next time but the substitutions were great. Thanks!
Simply Fantastico! So healthy so tasty. Didn't have baby spinach so blanched regular spinach for 2-3 minutes instead. Also replaced goatcheese with feta. Was quick light and healthy. Thoroughly recommend it to all. Thank you for posting this recipe!
Wow! This recipe juxtaposes the strong flavors of beets vinegar and goat cheese with the creamy texture of the goat cheese and the crunch of walnuts and adds the sparkle of the caramelized sugar. It was a treat. I sprayed that walnuts with a cooking spray to help the sugar stick to them. I added a little beet juice to thin the dressing.
If I could give this 10 stars I would! It was so delicious even my husband had seconds...and thirds! I especially love the vinaigrette. I used some of the sliced beets on the salad as well. Thanks! I'll be making this again and again!
This was very good and a nice change of pace from some of the regulars we always have. Not to mention very easy to throw together. Who knew the combination of ingredients (chicken bouillon?!? with pickled beets?) in the dressing could result in such a tasty vinaigrette. I made a few changes to the salad part because all I had was feta and blue cheese....hubby had the feta and I had the blue cheese....we liked both! I also didn't caramelize my walnuts---didn't want the added sugar. Again thought the raw walnuts where just as good. However I'm sure the original recipe would even be better with farmers cheese and caramelized walnuts!
