The flavour combination of beets, oranges, balsamic vinegar, and goat cheese is among our all-time favourites! It creates just the right amount of texture, and the play of sweetness and tanginess hits every bite. Because we love this flavour combination so much, we decided to create an entire salad recipe dedicated to these ingredients. Meet the Beets & Balsamic Salad! It features not one but two types of beets! It is a mix of pickled beets, raw beets, oranges, red onion, goat cheese, spinach, greenhouse lettuce, and a homemade orange balsamic vinaigrette. It is the kind of Inspired Go salad that will brighten up winter days and keep your taste buds alive!
Beets, Oranges, & Goat Cheese
The Beets & Balsamic Salad is full of vibrant flavours! Beautiful orange segments bring zest to this salad alongside the tangy goat cheese and pickled beets. The perfect amount of diced red onion also balances this sweet and savoury salad. We added julienne beets into the mix to give the salad some extra crunch. These toppings are laid upon the perfect bed of crispy greenhouse lettuce and spinach. In this meal, we find that we have truly mastered the art of balance. The tanginess is counterpoised by sweetness, and each ingredient is included in the perfect portion to create a masterpiece. The result is a salad that is not like any other salad. It is a celebration of ingredients working together to be bright and grounded, and bold yet balanced. This meal is a true feast for your senses!
Orange Balsamic Vinaigrette
At Inspired Go, we love a good balsamic dressing, and this one does not disappoint! We use high-quality ingredients that come together to create this versatile and delightful dressing. The sweet and tangy notes from the orange juice and white balsamic vinegar are balanced by the natural sweetness of a dash of honey. Dijon mustard adds a creamy texture and a subtle kick to this homemade dressing, while garlic adds depth and savoury complexity. We love how refreshing this dressing is because of freshly squeezed orange juice and the milder nature of white balsamic vinegar. Following the theme of this salad, this dressing is the perfect match for the sweet and savoury toppings in the Beets & Balsamic Salad!
