FFWD Lime Honey Beet Salad


Paul absolutely loves beets - they may be his favorite vegetable.  I definitely like them, so we eat them fairly often.  I typically just roast, peel, and cut them into chunks.  I liked that this recipe was a slight variation, but also not much more time consuming than my usual.  This came together very easily on a Sunday night (while I was cooking some other things).  I let it marinate in the fridge, and we enjoyed it for dinner on Monday.  We had some nice french feta that needed to get used up, and I'm always looking for ways to use our lettuce, so I served it together as a salad.  I really enjoyed the combination.  I really like french feta (or goat cheese) with beets.  The beet salad itself was good, but not amazing.  Dill and beets are a classic combination, but I'm not sure how much I could really taste the lime juice.  I served the corn pancakes on the side, but that's for another post.  I'm looking forward to seeing what everyone else thought of the recipe!

  1. Your post is the second one I saw with the golden beets and I am anxious to try them. I also think that goat cheese would be a great addition to
    this. Thanks for the tip. Everything looks wonderful. Have a great
    weekend.

  2. I admit that I threw a little goat cheese on my leftover beets on the second day. It is just such a classic combo and one that never fails to please. Your beets looks delicious, sorry to hear that they didn't wow you. I can't say that this was a recipe which knocked me over, but it is a great quick nutritious weekday option and I am always looking for such recipes.

  11. Hi Jora! Funny, I thought the dressing was very lime-y. I guess it must depend on the lime. I like the contrast of the golden beets against the salad greens. Very summery.
