A few days back, I came across one of my favorite blogs, Mama’s Weeds, and she was steaming beets and putting them in her salads. Lately, I have been seeking out salads with beets at restaurants and buffets. So it only made since for me to take my newfound knowledge of steaming beets and make a salad, right?
California Pizza Kitchen has this amazing salad with beets, when I order it I always ask for the meat and eggs to be omitted. They call it Moroccan Chicken Salad, I don’t know if the salad is Moroccan or the Chicken is, but either way, I dig this salad.
After getting a few items at the grocery store, I was armed and ready to make this salad. I peeled and steamed the beets. I roasted a butternut squash. My avocados were ready to eat. Yep, it was time.
red bell pepper
roasted butternut squash
I added spinach and instead of champagne vinaigrette, which I didn’t have, I used balsamic vinaigrette. Amazing!
I served it with wild rice and red beans.
Now that’s a delicious meal!
Until next time…
