roasted beet salad with gorganzola and walnuts


I have to say, I'm a Costco addict. I totally get roped into trying all new goodies they carry. Lately I've been loving their bagged greens mix with baby spinach, kale, and chard. It is perfect for throwing in a green smoothie, and delicious in salads too. Here's a salad combo from the other night that turned out really well.

Roasted Beet Salad with Gorganzola and Walnuts

Components: 

  • baby spinach, chard, and kale (mix from Costco)
  • 1 roasted beet per person, diced (also found at costco, pre-roasted!)
  • crumbled gorgonzola or blue cheese
  • walnuts, chopped
  • poppy seed dressing (I used some from the superfood slaw mix from Costco, but Brianna's is great too)
Assembly:

Not that you need directions for a salad, but here they are. Assemble this salad directly on plates to ensure no leftovers. Start with greens, then the beets, then cheese, then nuts, and top with a light drizzle of dressing. The strong flavor of the cheese plays really well with the beets, and enhances their sweetness. It is delicious!
