"I loved this beet salad. My favourite flavour was the fresh basil from my garden. I didn't really measure the walnuts so I probably used a bit more than 2 tbsp. Thanks for a delicious lunch. Made for Ramadan tag."
"I have made the beet/cheese/nut salad many times before, but this really stands out because of the fresh basil. YUM! I used fresh roasted beets butr otherwise followed the recipe to a T. Thanks!! Made for PRMR tag."
"Beautifund and tasty salad! We used parsley and basil and fresh cheese instead of goat cheese.
The roasted walnuts are a good choice for the topping. I used some "wild" ones, they are more tasty!
Thanks a lot for the recipe we all enjoyed it very much. If available next time I will use goat cheese."
"Lovely salad! I used golden beets (Dh SWORE he disliked beets until he tried golden beets, which he loved, so I was lucky to find some at the market - and wasn't about to push my luck! I also threw in a few grape tomatoes for some more colour. I used recipe #133158 as the dressing, and we took this to work for lunch and wowed our co-workers! I did roast my own beets, which only enhanced their sweetness and and went so well with the creamy goat cheese and slight sour of the dressing. This is definately one I'll make again, and would be very impressive for company! Made for 1-2-3 Hits Tag - thank you, Annacia, for sharing this recipe - and sorry for the tupperware it's photographed in - it was headed to work!"
"We really enjoyed this wonderful recipe. The sweetness of the beets is complimented by the tartness of recipe #166068 and the creamy goat cheese adds the crowning touch. The only change I made was to use toasted pecans in place of the walnuts. Definitely something I will make again."
"These flavors marry so well together. I roasted my own beets and used a homemade vinaigrette for the dressing. Yummy!"
