Posted: Updated:

Mixed greens

3 roasted beets

1-2 clementines peeled and divided

tablespoon fresh chopped chives

1/4 cup of cranberries

1/4 cup of crumbled goat cheese

top with maple roasted walnuts and citrus dressing

See recipes below.

Maple Roasted Walnuts.

Take approximately 1/2 cup of walnuts and 2 tsp of real maples syrup. Sautee in skillet over med/high heat until walnuts begin to brown. Let cool and then sprinkle on salad.

You can store these in the fridge and use for salads, oatmeal, snacks anytime.

Roasted Beets

Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees

Trim the tails and greens and thoroughly scrub. Rub beets with olive oil and place is casserole dish.

Cover with foil.

Bake for about 50 minutes.

Remove from oven and let them cool enough to remove the skins. They should slide right off. You can serve them cool or warm. I prefer warm.

Citrus Dressing

2 tbsp red wine vinegar

1/4 cup olive oil

1/4 cup of fresh orange juice

1/2 tsp salt

1/4 tsp pepper

1 minced garlic clove

1/2 tsp orange zest

Place all ingredients in mason jar. Shake and pour.

*This dressing will need to refrigerated. The olive oil will harden in fridge. You can set it out to warm before serving again or microwave for a few seconds.
