Happy Spring!! Crazy, right? Feels like it was just Christmas! Until recently, I have not given beets the chance they deserve. They’ve always been one of those intimidating veggies that I always wonder what to make with it! Well for this months Recipe Redux post I am sharing this 7 Ingredient Roasted Beets with Feta Salad!

Flavorful Spring Salad! 7-Ingredient Roasted Beet and Feta Salad is one for the books!
- 5 red beets
- 1 lemon (juice)
- 1/2 cup feta cheese
- 1/4 cup EVOO
- 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
- 1 shallot minced
- 2 green onions chopped
Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Wash beets well and place in a oven safe dish and cover with foil. Roast beets in oven for 1-2 hours, depending on size. You should be able to stick a fork or toothpick in easily. Let sit for 30 minutes before you remove the skin. Be sure to use a paper towel to remove the skin!
Dice up the beets and let marinate in 2 Tbsp. of the EVOO and balsamic vinegar for 10 minutes. Then toss in remaining ingredients and stir. Serve cold. Enjoy!
Beets are like sponges - they soak everything up! This is why I let the beets marinate for a few minutes in the olive oil to get extra tasty!
You may also use parsley instead of green onions as a substitute!
Also - if you don't have time to roast the beets, you can buy baby beets or cooked beets (I like the brand Love Beets).
