Ever crave beets? Me too! Ever crave beets and goat cheese? Me too! This salad is one of my favorites and if Im ever out at a restaurant and see a roasted beet salad I have to get it. The beets can be cooked ahead of time, as well as the balsamic reduction, and then assembled before youre ready to eat. Be careful when youre peeling the beets because the red beet juice will stain!

Ingredients

Beets 6 , peeled and sliced
Olive oil 1 Tablespoon
Salt and pepper To Taste
Balsamic vinegar 1/3 Cup (5.33 tbs)
Maple syrup/Brown sugar 1 Tablespoon
