Today I’m sharing one of my favorite salad recipes, roasted beets with goat cheese and pistachios. Salad was one of the few things I could eat when I was pregnant, especially the first two trimesters. My morning sickness was so terrible that I could barely keep anything down, especially greasy food. Butter and animal fat were my nemesis, event just a hint of it. Morning sickness is a misnomer by the way. I was throwing at random times, not just the morning.
This salad became a lunch staple. I alternated between soft boiled eggs and poached chicken to have some protein. Nowadays, I like these beets without any meats. I love the combination of sweet, crunch, and tang in this salad. So simple but satisfying. If meat is an absolute must have, grilled chicken in a great option.
We were lucky to have fresh beets from our garden for this salad. If you’re on the fence about beets, I hope this dish will change your mind.
