I usually think of beets in the fall and winter, but the roasted beetroot in the salad is so good. The addition of the fruit pairs well with it and makes it quite summery.
Peel the beets, lightly brush them with oil and spices and bake.
Combine everything together and top with your favorite oil & vinegar pairing. This is the pairing I used! Strawberry Balsamic Vinegar and Basil Olive Oil.
