My Pretty Salad- Roasted Red Pepper and Beet Salad

Updated on July 9, 2014

A nice fresh salad goes so well with just about any dish. The reason I like this Roasted Red Pepper and Beet Salad is that it can be served as a side dish or made into a main dish by adding your choice of meat and, if vegetarian some rice or couscous. I call this a "pretty salad" that is perfect when having guests because the colors make it so appetizing and vibrant!

  • 1 tbls. honey
  • 1 tsp. dijon mustard

      I've never cared much for beets, but I dearly love roasted red peppers, so I just might have to give this recipe a try.

      Thanks for sharing.

      Nice salad, as you said you can have it as a side dish or main meal. I like salads, this one looks very attractive, must make one for tea tonight. It's the first day of autumn in NZ, so salads days are nearly over, but I will still enjoy them right to winter.
