Kale and Golden Beet Salad.

I still have lots of yummy kale coming out of the garden and we are really loving it raw. This past weekend we went to the local farmers market for some items we don’t have coming out of the garden right now and we got some really pretty golden beets. Since we were going to have kale salad anyhow, I thought adding the sweet earthiness of the beets to the salad might add a good layer of flavor. The salad turned out great, full of vibrant color and lots of nourishing vitamins and minerals and the best part is that this was a very simple salad to make. The only real time consumer was roasting the beets, which can be done in advance.

Kale and Golden Beet Salad. 


2 large golden beets

1 T olive oil

3 oz fresh kale

1 T red wine vinegar

1 T olive oil

1 T agave nectar

1/4 t granulated garlic

1/4 t kosher salt

1/8 t fresh cracked black pepper

1-2 oz crumbled goat cheese (optional)


Roast whole, unpeeled beets in a 400 degree oven for an hour and half in a foil pouch drizzled with olive oil.

Allow beets to cool and peel and chop them. Remove woody stems from kale and rough chop that.

In a medium bowl combine red wine vinegar and all remaining ingredients (except goat cheese). Toss in beets, kale and goat cheese. Serve chilled.
