I tried this salad in Rehoboth Beach, DE and vowed to duplicate it! It is so addicting with the crunchy sugared walnuts and creamy goat cheese. The vinaigrette is to die for. I don't even care for beets! Great for holiday dinners. A must try!

  3. In a large bowl, toss together the sugar-coated walnuts and spinach. Before serving, drizzle with the blended beat mixture, toss, and sprinkle with goat cheese.

THIS WAS WONDERFUL! I SERVED IT TO GUESTS, THAT RAVED ABOUT IT. IT DID NOT SAY WHAT TO DO WITH THE BEET JUICE! SO, I ADDED A BIT TO THE DRESSING MIXTURE.

This salad is FANTASTIC! I didn't have boullion mix, so omitted it. I didn't have the walnuts either, so I just added some toasted pine nuts and sunflower seeds, and for sweetness added a bit of chopped mango. I'll try it with the walnuts next time, but the substitutions were great. Thanks!

Simply Fantastico! So healthy, so tasty. Didn't have baby spinach, so blanched regular spinach for 2-3 minutes instead. Also, replaced goatcheese with feta. Was quick, light and healthy. Thoroughly recommend it to all. Thank you for posting this recipe!
