Valentine Week Begins: ‘My Heart Beets for You’ Roasted Beet Salad Recipe

February 7, 2010 in Appetizers, Healthy Fare, Side Dishes, Vegan Recipes, Vegetarian Entrees

It’s one week until Valentine’s Day and we here at FFF have lots of sweet ideas for serving up Love on a Plate. Surprise your Valentine with romantic – and healthy – delicious-ness!

This is a very ‘Martha’ salad – it looks so festive and like you have slaved for hours, but (confession time) this takes only a few minutes of prep time to throw together.

Beets are an ultra-healthy root vegetable. That deep crimson color means they are full of anti-cancer heart-healthy goodness, and – bonus! – it is the perfect deep redness for a Valentine themed salad!

To make these yummy beet hearts, just follow three steps: 1) Peel and slice the beets about 1/4 inch thickness and then cut into heart shapes; 2) Place on a baking sheet and lightly spray with canola oil and sprinkle with salt; and 3) Roast for about 30 minutes at 425 degrees, or until softened.

That’s it!

Then just cool and place on your favorite salad!
