A Plate of Roasted Beet & Goat Cheese Salad
Roasted Beet & Goat Cheese Salad

The only explanation I can think of is that it must be the Ukrainian in me that has me loving beets. More than potatoes, peas and carrots out of my garden, more than any berry (excepting the Saskatoon, of course),my love affair with fresh garden beets happens every summer, without fail. It’s like revisiting an old lover every year, because as much as I love beets, the only type I usually eat off season is the jars of pickled beets that I put up in the late summer/fall.

Roasted beets and goat cheese in a salad are the ultimate pairing, in my opinion. A gorgeous, creamy chèvre paired with a slightly sweet dressing, healthy greens and roasted beets? I could eat plates upon plates of it.

Lucky for us, chèvre (a creamy, decadent goat cheese) has become mainstream, so mainstream that you can find 4 or 5 different kinds at Superstore or Safeway.

If you look closely at this salad, you can see that I chose a herb crusted chèvre, which just made this salad sing.

We have been eating so many beets that I honestly don’t know if I will have any to pickle this fall and I think I am ok with that. Maybe. There’s nothing like home canned pickled beets but I am having a hard time restraining from eating beets all summer long.

Last winter was long, hard and miserable. We are enjoying the fresh bounty of our garden like nobody’s business this year, which funny enough, is also our largest garden. I’ve been gifting tomatoes, carrots and greens, but we are eating from the garden daily as well.

That said, boy, can I feel fall coming and this year I am not ready for it. I’m not sure why. I think we’ve had a better summer than last year, but we also had a cold, miserable spring. I usually love fall and embrace the crisp mornings with the warm days, but I have this ominous feeling that it’s going to be another horrible October where it’s freezing by Halloween. Sigh.

I also have to face the fact that I am not getting rid of my children this fall thanks to homeschooling them. No more lunches out with Mike and just the other day we realized oh, that business meeting we have on Tuesday? Well, only one of us can attend, thanks to the kids being at home. BIG adjustment. No, HUGE adjustment. It is worth it, of course, but the whole family is going to have to find our rhythm together.

So who’s excited to send the kids back to school and get back into a schedule?

Maybe I’ll just drop my kids off at a random school. Just once in a while…no one will notice, right?

Love you more than beets,

    Raglan Road Irish Pub at Disney Springs serves a tasty version of this they call the Go-at Figure. My family isn’t crazy about beets so I happily eat theirs.

  2. Renata Vlaho says

    Oh my God, I’m making that for dinner tonight! I’ve never roasted beets, I picked some up at the farmer’s market this morning on my way to work, and there you have it. I’m sooo looking forward to it.

  7. The Kitchen Magpie says

    I t does the sweet just makes it super yummy!

  8. Katrina Veness says

    this looks so yummy and the maple syrup sounds like it gives it a unique taste .

  9. Susan F says

    We have friends who grow beets, and they refer to us as their friends who love beets.  Oddly enough, a lot of people do not.  This recipe looks yummy – and I can’t wait to make it!  

  10. The Kitchen Magpie says

    Ok, so not just me then. Spring sucked and was cold as heck and now fall is coming. Sigh.

  11. The Kitchen Magpie says

    Not that crazy much, I would add it to “taste” and see what you like! The little bit of sweetness is what makes it sooo good, honey should work just fine!

  12. Sharon Thomas says

    I’m thinking this might just be on my table tonight! 🙂 How much would the taste change if using honey instead of maple syrup (hubby’s not a fan)?
