What a nice way to use beets and avocados when they are in season. I dressed with a raspberry vinaigrette and skipped the honey. Fresh and tasty!!

Delicious! I knew I would love this, just because I love avocado, beets and feta anyway. I used golden beets that I roasted myself -- I don't buy red beets very often because they stain everything. My poor avocado was a bit past it's prime, so I'd really like to try this again with a firmer avocado (if it tasted that good with an old avocado, I can only imagine how good it would be with a better one). I only had one head of romaine, but that still made quite a bit of salad. I was eating this for dinner, so I topped it with some grilled chicken strips after I snapped my photo, too (although my poor anemic avocado looks like chicken in the photo anyhow, lol). Since I like to take salads to work for dinner, I'm sure I'll be making this one again. Thanks for posting, JB! :) Made by a fellow Emerald City Shaker for ZWT7

This was a good salad. I've been on such a beet kick lately, just love beets in salad! I also love feta and avocado so this sounded like the perfect salad for me. Only change I made was to use spinach instead of romaine because it's what I had on hand... and I definitely didn't use full amount of salad that was called for. Today for my lunch I made it again with a balsamic fig dressing and added walnut pieces and green onion. It was great! Made for ZWT7.
