Beets and strawberries are amazing when paired together, especially when the beets are oven roasted. By roasting the beets, their natural sweetness and amazing flavor are enhanced, making them perfect with fresh strawberries. The beets and strawberries are then tossed in a sweet and tangy balsamic vinaigrette, and topped off with crumbled goat, feta, or blue cheese. You will find strawberries, beets, and green onions at the market this week!
- 5 medium beets
- splash of vegetable oil
- 2 tbsp canola oil (vegetable)
