Warm Beet Salad

By Gabby

I love beets and getting them incorporated into my diet can be tricky. This is a nice combination that is a wilted salad and if you like beets, it's just enough to hit the spot.

Warm Beet Salad
  • 8 cups baby spinach

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

  • 1 cup thinly sliced red onion

  • 2 plum tomatoes, seeded and chopped

  • 2 tablespoons fresh parsley, chopped

  • 1 clove garlic, minced

  • 2 cups cooked beets cut into wedges (fresh or canned)

  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar

  • salt and pepper to taste

  1. Heat oil in large skillet over medium heat. Add onion and cook, stirring until translucent. About 2 minutes. Add tomatoes, parsley and garlic and cook until the tomatoes start to break down slightly. Add beets and vinegar and continue to cook until the beets are heated through.

  2. Divide spinach between 4 plates and top with the warm beet mixture. Add salt and pepper to taste and serve warm.

  3. Options:

  4. The original recipe called for Kalamata olives to be chopped on top as well.

  5. A tablespoon of sunflower seeds sprinkled on top adds nice texture

I made a full recipe of this and had it for 4 days just reheating the beet mixture in the microwave and adding to my bed of spinach. I might add a little more vinegar to it next time so I have a little more to dress my greens.
