Carrot Apple Beet Juice). The menu description for their salad reads: “Mixed greens and arugula tossed with Blue Lemon Vinaigrette,  roasted red and yellow beets, feta cheese, candied pecans, sweet and sour red onions and carrots.” Sounds simple enough?

I went right to work recreating this delicious salad and couldn’t be happier with the results. I love EVERY component (although the Maple Candied Pecans may be my favorite). The IKEA SKYN serving bowl was a beautiful addition to my clean & modern style dinner table. Accompanied with the IKEA GRIPANDE 2-piece bamboo salad server set, it’s an excellent pairing for this salad or any other salad you may be serving.

Ingredients

For Salad

  • 2 c. mixed greens
  • 2 c. arugula or baby spinach
  • 2 medium red beets sliced
  • 2 medium yellow beets sliced
  • 1/2 c. pickled beets diced
  • 1/2 c. chopped maple candied pecans
  • 1/2 c. feta cheese

Lemon Vinaigrette

  • 3 tbsp. lemon juice
  • 3 tbsp. olive oil
  • 2 garlic cloves minced
  • ½ tsp. black pepper
  • ½ tsp. salt

Instructions

For Salad

  1. Boil the beets on medium heat for 45 mins or until easily pierced through with a knife. The skin will easily peel off. Once slightly cooled remove the skin of the beets and slice into cubes. In a bowl top spinach with sliced beets, diced pickled beets, feta cheese, and candied pecans with the lemon vinaigrette and serve.

For Lemon Vinaigrette

  1. In a small blender (I used my Blendtec Twister Jar) mix all ingredients together on setting 1 for 20 seconds.
